Revalidation – why it is time for a rethink


Mandatory annual e-learning modules set up by RCGP will keep all GPs’ education up to date at the same level. Bish bash bosh, job done. The current appraisal is an administrative time wasting nightmare. -Pointless questionnaires. -Useless audits. -Inventing the most banal PDP objectives that will involve the least effort. -The utter BS of “reflection” -The brain melting mundanity of collecting and uploading “evidence” -The insane waste of clinical time in 2 GPs going through all this crap -The insult-to-injury of having to pay for the web site that ruins your life for a month every year and crashes on submission day. -The nagging, gnawing feeling you have the other 11 months of the year knowing that you have to do all this tripe again soon, and haven’t done any work on it. -Looking forward to retirement so you can dump this bureaucratic, moronic, repetitive, pointless annual rectal examination forever.
