In a survey by GP's website Healthcare Republic, 36 per cent of 167 respondents were 'concerned' about revalidation, and 49 per cent 'confident'.
But 47 per cent were concerned about the CPD system, which means GPs must earn 50 learning credits per year. Only 41 per cent were confident.
Younger GPs and registrars were most confident, believing they could maintain recently established learning habits.
The main issue raised about the RCGP's plan for CPD was that using a point scoring system was inappropriate and open to interpretation.
