Appraisal and revalidation

Philip A Sugarman, Medical Director
26 February 2004

Sir

Dr Wood raises an area of major concern for many members of the College working outside of the NHS.

The Council of the College has recently supported a proposed appraisal scheme being further developed. This is to be coordinated between the College Special Committee on Clinical Governance, and the Private and Independent Practice Special Interest Group.

In line with the plans of other Royal Colleges, the College might provide trained appraisers, primarily for practitioners not employed in managed environments. It seems likely any scheme would link with the College Continuing Professional Development system. However the proposal is still at an early stage.

In specialist fields such as medico-legal and Tribunal work, clinicalaudit can be difficult to implement. However plans to collate systematic feedback in these settings can best be developed as part of the appraisal process.
