GMC pledges to simplify revalidation and reduce doctor workload


In truth the 5 yearly meaningless and irrelevant revalidation is less of a ball ache than the annual meaningless and irrelevant appraisal. A couple of pointless questionnaires and a useless audit is a picnic compared to the sheer hell of inventing PDP objectives that will take the least effort, writing out drivel about meetings attended that no-one will ever read, and the hours frittered away uploading certificates on to a website that crashes the night before the appraisal. It's all a colossal waste of time and energy done to tick a box so we can be left in peace until we have to repeat the whole monstrosity a year later.
