What is revalidation?

Revalidation is defined in the Medical Act 1983 as the 'evaluation of a medical practitioner's fitness to practise' (Section 29A, part 5). The aim of revalidation is to provide assurance that all licensed doctors are up to date and fit to practise.

The revalidation process is based on the existing annual appraisal system, and doctors will be expected to provide evidence that their practice conforms to the GMC's core guidance, 'Good Medical Practice'. The evidence will be in the form of supporting information you collect during the five year revalidation cycle.
