Medical Appraisals UK was established in 2016 as an independent, certified medical appraisal provider for doctors by doctors. Our aim is to provide a simple, cost effective and robust appraisal service to our fellow doctors in line with the requirements of the NHSE and the GMC.
Medical appraisal is a process of facilitated self-review supported by information gathered from the full scope of a doctor’s work.
A medical appraisal can be used for four purposes:
- To enable doctors to discuss their practice and performance with their appraiser in order to demonstrate that they continue to meet the principles and values set out in Good Medical Practice and thus to inform the responsible officer’s revalidation recommendation to the GMC.
- To enable doctors to enhance the quality of their professional work by planning their professional development.
- To enable doctors to consider their own needs in planning their professional development.
