The General Medical Council has confirmed that from December doctors will begin to receive letters notifying them of their date for revalidation. It is expected that all 230 000 licensed doctors in the United Kingdom will have their dates confirmed by the end of March 2013.
Doctors will be given a minimum of six months warning of their first revalidation date, with the first dates scheduled for April 2013.
The first 20% of doctors to be revalidated in Scotland and Northern Ireland will have their revalidation dates picked at random on the basis of the penultimate digit of their GMC registration number.
In England responsible officers will randomly select a representative sample of doctors to go first for revalidation or will select the first doctors according to locally determined criteria, such as doctors with management or leadership roles (or a combination of both approaches).
Is there any fair way of deciding? Are you bothered at all when you might be revalidated?
