Coronavirus and your appraisal Revalidation

Your appraisal & revalidation during the COVID crisis (UK)

In 2020, medical appraisals and revalidation processes were frozen in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The processes have re-started and information information relating to appraisals and COVID-19 may now be historical, and policies may have changed. It is best to check with your designated body.

You may have struggled to complete an appraisal in the past 2 years or complete an MSF. It may be that your revalidation date has been moved for you, or you will need to have the date deferred. Do not worry about the date being deferred. This is often a neutral act that allows you to gather the evidence that your responsible Officer requires to recommend revalidation.
