Putting the validation back into revalidation

Comment

revalidation and appraisals are de-motivational tools .I’d like to quote the medical intellectual giant Dr Theodore Dalrymple at this point: ‘In obeying directives not because they are right but because they are directives, doctors lose their self-respect, their probity and their intellectual honesty. Gogolian absurdity can result – with a hint of Kafkaesque menace and Orwellian linguistic dishonesty I would rather sit a5-yearly board exam ( like in the US ) , rather than this touchy-feely - dishonest nonsense. And remember folks : appraisal /revalidation data is accessible vis freedom of information acts -- has been done already by lawyers to find dirt on doctors
