Thank you to everyone involved in the design and testing of the new Medical Appraisal 2020 process.
The temporary suspension of appraisals due to COVID-19 created space to re-balance the appraisal process to meet all of the GMC requirements for revalidation, while focusing more on you and your needs. This may be your first chance to debrief about the impact of the pandemic with a trained colleague. Moving to this process will allow you to make the most of it. The best appraisals have always supported the personal and professional development, as well as the health and wellbeing of doctors.
We ask you to ensure that your focused reflection beforehand is streamlined, the documentation you provide is minimised and the discussion is focused on your development not documentation. We hope to provide you with the most valuable appraisal you've ever had.
Please find at the top of this page, our latest newsletter on the restart of Appraisals in October 2020, along with the new QA tool 'SUPPORTS' as a pdf for information only, and as an editable Word document to download and use.
