The RCGP have today launched their new revalidation guide “The RCGP Guide to the Revalidation of General Practitioners”, together with some other tools to help GPs through the revalidation cycle. It’s a weighty tome, and appears to be published especially for those with poor vision. If you’re looking for advice specifically for locum GPs, you can skip straight to page 20, although of course the whole document applies to all sessional GPs.
RCGP publishes latest revalidation guidance

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
