MEDICAL APPRAISALS EXPLAINED

The introduction of medical revalidation in the United Kingdom (UK) from 3 December 2012 provides a key lever for healthcare improvement.

Medical appraisal and revalidation reinforces the duty of healthcare organisations to create an environment where doctors can meet their professional obligations. It also requires doctors to take part in organisational processes such as annual medical appraisal and clinical governance.

 
 

OUR PROCESS

We are also committed to work with other healthcare professionals like nurses, midwifes and other healthcare professionals by providing them a comprehensive medical appraisal platform that meets their professional regulatory requirements as set out by the NHS procurement framework.

Medical doctors appraisal including a GP appraisal can be often daunting to the uninitiated. Well conducted doctors appraisals including GP appraisals can improve job satisfaction and performance and may ultimately increase the quality and safety of patient care. We believe that a medical appraisal is at the core of this model. We will ensure that all medical practitioners have access to a experienced independent medical appraiser who is able to guide them through the use of various kits including the medical appraisal form, doctor appraisal toolkit, medical appraisal guide and assist them successfully through the key medical governance processes.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Professor Kazi conducted my appraisal and annual review for the past two year. He is very thorough and goes through all aspects required for the appraisal with care and appreciation of what is intended in the appraisal in order to improve you as a doctor with resultant improvement patient care, as I believe is the ethos of the appraisal and re-validation process. Professor Kazi is very knowledgeable on the appraisal process and clearly is an experienced appraiser. I had the benefit of a very constructive and realistic  feedback which gave rise to manageable educational and CME activities which I found directly led to improvement in my practice. I recommend Professor Kazi’s appraisal services wholeheartedly.

  • I was struggling to complete my yearly appraisal and the revalidation. This is because I work as locum and being locum doctor, it is difficult task to fulfil the domains of appraisal defined by the GMC. Besides I found difficult to understand the objectives in clear terms. PRK whom I was assigned to as my appraiser really took the responsibility. He explained me in detail how I should present the facts in the context of domains. He explained me the shortcomings in my portfolio and asked me to do focussed work so that I score the requisite points. He guided me throughout the appraisal and revalidation process so that I understand the objectives and made me achieve the revalidation.

    In short I can describe Professor Kazi as a good guide and mentor who deserves to be very able appraiser.

    Thank you Professor Kazi

  • Professor Kazi has appraised me thrice during my annual appraisal, as a part of revalidation.

    He has dealt with each appraisal in the most professional manner.  The appraisal meetings have run in a very smooth and timely manner.  Each section of the appraisal has been completed to my utmost satisfaction with ample opportunity for discussion and constructive feedback.

    He communicates effectively and is prompt in completing the appraisal formalities.

    Overall I found him to be an experienced, gentle and friendly appraiser who makes you feel comfortable throughout the appraisal meeting.

  • Professor Kazi has been my appraiser twice & I can write with all honesty that he is a very competent, knowledgeable & experienced appraiser. He judged my knowledge & practice in my subject as ENT surgeon in an unbiased way making me so comfortable as if was not an appraisal but a friendly meeting . He was very thorough in assessing me while discussing the MAG form page by page. He took a quick decision soon after wards. That showed his experience, thoroughness & competence in dealing with appraisal meetings. I will rate him the very best.

  • I have had the pleasure to be assessed for the second year for my GMC Revalidation by someone like you with great experience and knowledge in the field. As a British doctor working overseas it is vital to keep a live my GMC registration with license to practice for job security and obtaining my overseas license. The two Appraisals offered me a valuable opportunity to focus on work activities and goals, to identify and correct existing problems, and to be encourage better future performance. The value of this intense and purposeful interaction between you as a supervisor and me as a subordinate should not be underestimated
