Furious GPC negotiator predicts revalidation 'revolt' as GPs spend more than 40 hours preparing for appraisals


I have spent 4 days of some desperately needed time off, as well as previous evenings etc, to do this damn thing. I am fed up of being portrayed by all media as a money-grabbing, mass-murdering, lazy, incompetent, wholly-responsible-for-the-terrible-state-of-the-NHS GP. Revalidation will not change this and makes little difference my competence, it simply winds me up more so I wish I was in a position to retire much earlier than I can. I agree with previous comments: grass roots GPs need to be listened to and more vocally supported by the GPC to deliver a much more appropriate revalidation process
