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.
A really great guide to read and understand what is and isn’t expected of you as a GP to negotiate your way with ease through Appraisal and Revalidation processes.

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.
