Specialist guidance on supporting information

The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians of London have published such specialty guidance for appraisal and revalidation which is based on the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and Faculties’ core guidance for all doctors:

The GMC recommends that doctors in specialist practice should consult the supporting information guidance provided by their college or faculty. The specialist guidance amplifies the headings provided by the GMC, by providing additional detail about the GMC requirements and what each college or faculty expects relating to this, based on their specialty expertise. These expectations are laid out under ‘Requirements’. Further descriptive information is given under the heading “Guidance.”

The GMC have published 2 key documents on which the above guidance for supporting information for physicians is based. Much of the content is generic and will be required of all doctors, e.g. personal information, scope of work and health:

For Fellows and members whose job plan includes a significant contribution to medical management there is additional guidance from the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management.

If you are looking for revalidation information that specifically relates to any of the physician specialties and subspecialties, please turn directly to your specialist society or access the RCP's physician specialty resources.
