Revalidation in Wales

Whole practice appraisal

Annual appraisal should always consider a doctors whole practice, the GMC describes whole practice appraisal within their guidance on supporting information.

Whole scope of practice: You must declare all the places you have worked and the roles you have carried out as a doctor since your last appraisal. You must collect supporting information that covers the whole of this practice. It’s important you identify your whole scope of practice so you can make sure your supporting information covers all aspects of your work. Your supporting information must cover any work you do in:

A - clinical (including voluntary work) and non-clinical (including academic) roles

B - NHS, independent sector and private work.

To meet the requirements of revalidation the GMC requires all doctors to present supporting information covering all aspects of their professional duties. This will require information being presented at an annual appraisal. Doctors often undertake multiple roles – either cross specialty or in management, education etc. All of these roles will be covered by revalidation requirements and will need to be represented at an appraisal discussion.
