Revalidation is the process by which Doctors can show that they are up to date and fit to practice. It started in December 2012 and the General Medical Council plans to Revalidate all Licensed Doctors by March 2016.


Revalidation will be required every 5 years and is dependent on satisfactory annual appraisals and feedback from Colleagues and Patients once during that period.
