Video: My revalidation was 'not too bad' says GPC chairman

GPC chairman Dr Laurence Buckman, who is one of the first doctors in the UK to have submitted his evidence for revalidation, says GPs have little to fear.

Speaking to GPonline.com last week, Dr Buckman, who has now been recommended for revalidation by his responsible officer, described the process ‘as not too bad’.

He said his advice for worried GPs was: ‘Don’t worry. Just regard it as a normal appraisal with some extra paperwork.’

The GMC is due to complete the first wave of revalidation by March 2013.

All GPs should have received their revalidation date by the end of January 2013. It is expected that 20% of GPs will undergo revalidation between April 2013 and March 2014. The GMC aims to revalidate all GPs by the end of March 2018.
