Revalidation and Appraisal Updates


Revalidation and Appraisal Update July 2017

In this new joint update from Responsible Officer Dr David Flower and Clinical Appraisal Lead Dr Nicola Cordell, we aim to keep members informed on FOM’s progress on revalidation and SOM’s progress on appraisal. In addition, the update aims to suggest steps which will make the appraisal and revalidation process run more smoothly. All future newsletters will be combined communication from both FOM and SOM, as we continue to work together to streamline the appraisal and revalidation process.

Responsible Officer Dr David Flower and Clinical Appraisal Lead Dr Nicola Cordell offer up the second Revalidation update of 2016, which features fresh guidance and information for those revalidating through FOM.

Revalidation Update August 2013

The first Revalidation Update has now been released. This is a way for the Faculty Responsible Officer and for those supporting revalidation at the Faculty to communicate with all doctors who are revalidating through the Faculty and, hopefully, to demystify the process and highlight what progress we are making – individually and as a designated body. There will be an Update every three months and it will be a way to make sure that revalidation is not a remote or worrying process, but rather a core element of a doctor’s practice in which all feel able to take full part and benefit from.

In this first Update, as well as Faculty progress so far, we have dealt with three major issues which have been flagged up to us by our members;

  • Why is there a requirement to address clinical governance as part of a strengthened medical appraisal via the Additional Questions?
  • Why has SEQOHS been referenced in the Additional Questions and what is its relationship to appraisal and revalidation?
  • Hints and tips for getting the most out of PReP, based on some frequently asked questions.
