DoH set to back five-yearly GP revalidation plan

A plan for five-yearly revalidations of GPs was expected from the DoH, which was due to publish its professional regulation White Paper as GP went to press.

It is a response to the recommendations of the CMO’s report, ‘Good Doctors, Safer Patients’, and the Foster review of non-medical regulation.

The DoH will also publish its response to the fifth report of the Shipman Inquiry, ‘which sets out a wide-ranging plan to put in place new safeguards’ for patients.

Last week GP reported expected changes including loss of the GMC’s adjudication role and the introduction of a sliding scale of proof in fitness-to-practise cases.
