The Revalidation Support Unit (RSU) develop and manage a suite of online resources including MARS.
The system supports doctors and designated bodies through the medical appraisal and revalidation process. MARS is an end to end revalidation system which guides users through annual appraisal and completion of their supporting information as described by the GMC.
MARS is continually improving to ensure it remains fit-for-purpose to support all doctors undertaking annual appraisal. MARS is used by over 7500 doctors in Wales and we deliver a high-quality service desk provision to support all our online sites.
The MARS landing page will direct you to the appropriate log in page, there are currently two instances, one for GPs and one for all other doctors.
The MARS Help and Support pages include clear user guides and instruction videos for navigating the site.
Revalidation Progress Page
The revalidation progress page is a key view within MARS which enables doctors to see where they are at in their progress towards revalidation.
The page includes information such as revalidation date, areas of supporting information completed and any remaining areas which are needed.
It is important that doctors understand their progress towards revalidation and ensure their supporting information is collected throughout the cycle to avoid any unnecessary worry or concern. If this page is reviewed by the doctor each year at appraisal and their PDP contains revalidation supporting information to work towards, all elements will be completed well ahead of their revalidation date
