  • GMC 'pleased with revalidation progress' despite deferrals for one in 10 GPs

    I think it all depends on using the right tools in preparing for your appraisal. Ever since our ccg has moved to using www.gptools.org, not only have they saved over £100K+ but the time we spend in recording evidence and reflecting upon it has been drastically cut. I recently completed my patient feedback using their service, just downloaded and printed out the forms - got the report back in less than two days. Use a toolkit which embraces new technology to make your life easier.

    I think it all depends on using the right tools in preparing for your appraisal. Ever since our PCO has moved to using GPTools.org, not only have they saved over £100K+ but the time we spend in recording evidence and reflecting upon it has been drastically cut. I can even send web articles I've read directly into my appraisal using the tool they provide. Actually makes revalidation ready appraisals easier than the old style ones we used to do.
