GMC to recruit revalidation director

The GMC is currently recruiting for a chair of a new programme board that will oversee the delivery of revalidation.

The board, which will include representatives from the four administrations, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the GMC, BMA and patient organisations as well as the NHS and other healthcare providers, will ensure revalidation is delivered in a co-ordinated and consistent way in all four UK countries.

GMC president Sir Graeme Catto said: ‘We are looking for an exceptional individual who can help to coordinate and oversee plans for the delivery of medical revalidation, someone who can work independently and with integrity to command the confidence of key interest groups.'

The UK Revalidation Programme Board will report directly to the GMC.

The GMC plans to introduce licences to practise in the autumn of 2009. Licensing will be the first step towards the introduction of revalidation.
