Enjoy your appraisal….

Enjoy your appraisal….

Two years after the formal introduction of NHS revalidation, NASGP appraisal and revalidation lead and locum GP Sara Chambers recounts her experience of appraisal, and how this has fed into the development of NASGP’s AppraisalAid.

Over one fifth of licensed doctors will now have been revalidated, and on the surface all seems to be running smoothly. Most doctors, so far, seem to be getting positive recommendations, although the deferral rate is running at 18% and there are rumbles that the coming years could be more challenging as “less engaged and more difficult doctors with performance issues” enter the system.

How has the experience been for sessional GPs, especially the estimated 17,000 GPs who work as locums?

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
