Get Involved - Appraisal and FtP referrals

Do you want to be involved in a major evaluative research study into the regulatory impacts of medical revalidation, commissioned by the General Medical Council, and delivered independently by a UK-wide collaboration? Here’s how:

Research Activities: doctors referred to Fitness to Practise procedures

As part of the wider UMbRELLA study, we are interested to know if appraisal, as a revalidation mechanism, can facilitate the identification and remedy of potential concerns about doctors before they become Fitness to Practise referrals.

In order to explore this, we would like to analyse the appraisal documentation of doctors who have been referred to the GMC's Fitness to Practise procedures by their employer and whose FTP case is now resolved.

If this applies to you, please see the Frequently Asked Questions about this aspect of our research and get in touch if you may be interested in participating. We would like to analyse your appraisal documentation from the five years preceding the FTP referral in order to undertake a Root Cause Analysis to explore whether the issues which raised concerns could have been identified earlier and remedied locally. 

Scroll down to watch Dr Julian Archer - UMbRELLA's principal investigator - explain why we are interested in learning about the appraisal experience of doctors who have been referred to FTP procedures by their employers, and what taking part in this aspect of our research would involve.

In particular, we are interested in:

  • If appraisal, as a revalidation mechanism, can facilitate the identification and early remedy of potential concerns about doctors
  • Whether concerns about doctors which resulted in fitness to practise referrals could have been identified earlier via appraisal
  • What support, if any, was available to the doctor involved
