Consultation on the Revalidation regulations
Revalidation - Consultation on the Licence to Practise and Revalidation Regulations 2012
This consultation seeks your views on the draft regulations covering the process that will enable the GMC to revalidate a doctor’s licence to practise.
Why the consultation should matter to you
The consultation is relevant to all licensed doctors because it describes the process by which doctors will demonstrate that they are practising in accordance with the values and principles in our core guidance in order to maintain their licence to practise.
It is also relevant to employers and contractors of doctors’ services and, in particular, to Responsible Officers within such organisations who will be expected to fulfil certain statutory duties as part of the revalidation process.
Patients and the public may also be interested to understand the processes by which doctors will demonstrate to the GMC that they remain up to date and fit to practise.
The consultation runs from Monday 17 October 2011 to Friday 27 January 2012. The results will be published in spring 2012.
