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

Comment

Why do GPs not simply request a straightforward knowledge test for re-accreditation? Taking maybe three hours (cf the MRCGP AKT), this will correlate pretty well with actual competence, and precipitate a few failing individuals into proper assessments. Most GPs I know would prefer this, and it would surely re-assure patients far more than appraisals.
