  1. 1. July 2013 Prof William R Roche Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management Medical Revalidation, From Reactive Responses to Regular Reviews
  2. 2. Impact of the Responsible Officer Legislation • Changes in Professional Governance • Implementation • Costs • Benefits to Patients, Public and Profession
  3. 3. Why Revalidation? OUR PILOTS WERE ALL TRAINED (years ago)
  4. 4. Why Revalidation? OUR PILOTS ALL UNDERTAKE REGULAR TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT
  5. 5. Why Revalidation? DO YOU KNOW IF THE SURGEONS ABOUT TO OPERATE ON YOU PARTICIPATE IN REGULAR UPDATES AND ASSESSMENT OF THEIR RESULTS?
  6. 6. Situation prior to 2012 Doctor qualifies - Provisional Registration One Foundation Year – Full Registration Subject to payment of annual fee and no GMC action - registered for life
  7. 7. From 3 December 2012, by statute GMC requires Doctors to revalidate their Licences to Practise Licensed doctors will have to revalidate, usually every five years. Based on by having regular appraisals that are based on the core guidance for doctors, Good Medical Practice. Supported by a hierarchy of Responsible Officers
  8. 8. Hierarchy NHS Commissioning Board MD (Level 3 RO) Regional MD (4) (Level 2 RO) Area Team MD (27) (Level 1 RO) GPs etc. Providers’ RO (Level 1 RO) Deaneries RO (Level 1 RO) Trainees Connected Doctors
  9. 9. 9 Scheduling doctors for revalidation
  10. 10. Enhanced Appraisal is the Cornerstone of Revalidation • The GMC requires that doctors must demonstrate their fitness to practise in all the areas in which they work • Appraisal covers all aspects of practice inside and outwith the employing organisation • Records of Annual Appraisal must be maintained • Responsible Officers use Appraisals and other sources of information to make recommendations to the GMC
  11. 11. Six Types of Supporting Information Required for Appraisal 1.Continuing professional development 2.Quality improvement activity 3.Significant events 4.Feedback from colleagues 5.Feedback from patients 6.Review of complaints & compliments
  12. 12. Responsible Officers make Recommendations to GMC Options: 1. No Concerns, GMC revalidates 2. Doctor failing to engage with process (GMC acts) 3. Deferral, revalidation date reset, e.g. Doctor on Maternity Leave Concerns about Fitness for Practise should be referred to the GMC in the usual way and should not await the revalidation date.
  13. 13. Scale of the Task (UK) Register* No. of doctors % No. of doctors licensed % Specialist Register 74,449 29.47% 70,368 29.70% GP Register 62,453 24.72% 60,068 25.36% Total no. of doctors on LRMP 252,653 100.00% 236,898 100.00%
  14. 14. COSTS • £93 M per annum, mainly medical time • Financial Benefits – Less harm and litigation – Fewer doctors excluded – Fewer doctors not working because of health issues
  15. 15. The Challenge HOW TO USE REVALIDATION TO SECURE THE BEST OUTCOMES FOR PATIENTS AND DOCTORS
  16. 16. OUTCOMES PATIENTS & PUBLIC: – HIGH QUALITY EXPERIENCE AND OUTCOMES – REASSURED AND CONFIDENT DOCTORS: – BETTER TEAM WORKING – CONFIDENCE THAT ISSUES ARE ADDRESSED – INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT AND WELL-BEING MEDICAL LEADERS – SUPPORT – ADVICE AND CONSISTENCY
  17. 17. Revalidation is Just One Component of Clinical Quality and Safety Measures in the Responsible Officer Regulations • Enhanced Recruitment Checks, including language • Assurance that Doctors are Appropriately Qualified for Proposed Duties • Better Appraisals • Monitoring Governance Data • Records of Outcomes, Adverse Events etc. • Information Sharing across Sectors about Doctors • Earlier Remediation
