Medical Appraisals & GMC Revalidation Services for Doctors

All About LTP

All GMC registered doctors with a license to practice Licence To Practice - Better Regulation, Better Medical Staff, Better Patient Care need annual appraisals to maintain their license. Appraisals are part of the revalidation process and we will strive to make your life easy by offering the best doctors appraisal services and streamline the process for you, provide timely and appropriate advice and support you throughout the process.

What is Revalidation?

Every doctor who is fully registered with a license to practise now needs to revalidate regularly in a 5-year cycle, demonstrating that they are keeping up to date and practicing safely. This includes doctors in foundation year two and specialty training.

Revalidation actually only takes place once every 5 years, but will be based on the evidence you are providing every year at your annual appraisal process. Therefore each year, there will be an assessment of Fitness to Practise at each appraisal. Revalidation encompasses the full scope of a doctor’s work, for trained as well as training doctors, which includes any other work carried out by a doctor, including locum work, voluntary work as a doctor etc.
