Locum / Sessional GP Appraisal and Revalidation

The RCGP and GMC are aware that fulfilling appraisal and revalidation requirements can be more difficult for sessional GP's and changes have now been made to help others address this. Make sure you (and your appraiser) are clear on what is needed.

Revalidation for Locums

This document contains a range of practical suggestions that GP locums can use to add to their existing evidence for appraisal. It has been written by GP locums for GP locums.

The key message is that revalidation doesn’t have to be difficult. If in doubt ask early – your Appraiser and your LMC will be happy to help.

You can read this document from start to finish or dip in and dip out again. We hope that you find it helpful.
