After seven years of delivering appraisal for all General Practitioners in Wales, the GP Section of the Wales Postgraduate Deanery is pleased to welcome you to this new version of our appraisal and revalidation web-site.
The site has undergone significant change and we hope that you find it easy to use and helpful as a repository for both your appraisal and continuing professional development and for the evidence that we all need to gather for revalidation. The site has been extensively tested for functionality and security and we don’t envisage any problems. However, should you encounter any, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
As previously, we have been mindful of the need to link appraisal with other aspects of clinical governance and have continued to work with partners in Wales to ensure this end. Although the advent of revalidation will make explicit the need to demonstrate evidence to support our fitness to practice at regular intervals, our emphasis for appraisal remains on a process that is positive, supportive and educational. Strong links are made with continuing professional development and our resource locator and other learning links are evident within the site.
We believe and expect that appropriate use of this site will enable GPs in Wales to easily demonstrate and achieve their required continuing professional development and to demonstrate to their responsible officer and to the General Medical Council that they have accumulated the required evidence to be revalidated.
