Background

Revalidation is the General Medical Council’s process for regulating licensed doctors to assure patients and the public that licensed doctors are up to date and fit to practise. Revalidation commenced in December 2012 and every doctor who is fully registered with a licence to practise, including doctors who are in training, are required to participate in revalidation.  The aim is to support doctors in their professional development, helping to improve quality, patient safety and public confidence in the profession. Licensed doctors have to revalidate approximately every five years. In addition, doctors in postgraduate training also revalidate when they receive their Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).
