Before your nominated appraisal month you will be notified, usually three months before, by email that it is time to plan your appraisal and you will be given the name and contact details of your allocated appraiser.
Your appraiser will likewise be notified and given your contact details (usually an email address and contact numbers).
You will normally be allocated the same appraiser for three consecutive years for the sake of continuity. If, for any reason, you would prefer to be allocated a different appraiser, please contact us and we will take any appropriate action.
Appraisal policy is that you should have at least two different appraisers in each revalidation cycle, but in exceptional circumstances it may be appropriate for you to have a fourth appraisal with the same appraiser. If you feel you would benefit from this you will need to complete this form and send to firstname.lastname@example.org for the consideration of the senior WAS team, with notice to your Designated Body / Responsible Officer for the reasons behind the agreement/disagreement. If submitting a form you will receive acknowledgement of that within 48 (working) hours and the outcome of the decision within a further five working days.
