Get Involved - Surveys

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:

Survey of doctors in practice in the UK 

NOW OPEN !!

We are now surveying four groups of doctors to learn more about their views and experiences of connecting to their designated bodies, and participating in annual appraisal and revalidation.

The four groups are:

  • Doctors in independent practice
  • Locum doctors
  • Staff and Associate Specialist doctors
  • Doctors with no prescribed connection

 

If you belong to one of these groups, please check for emails from UMbRELLA inviting you to take part in our surveys.

Frequently asked questions about the survey are available here:

                                       Survey FAQs

Learning about your experiences of and your views about appraisal, supporting information and revalidation will enable us to build a picture of how these processes are impacting on doctors and their delivery of healthcare across the UK. We seek to understand revalidation in the first cycle so that the GMC can further shape revalidation in the future. While the research is independent of the GMC, it will be used by them to inform revalidation policy and practice.                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Keep up to date! 

The latest developments to the study will be announced here. Bookmark this Website and you will be kept up to date on our findings and publications, or follow us on TwitterFacebook and Linkedin.

If you have any queries, including those relating to the survey, then please contact us on contact@umbrella-revalidation.org.uk

 

 

In particular, we are interested in:

  • How appraisal happens for doctors working in different healthcare settings and specialties
  • How appraisal happens for doctors whose practice is mixed or split between diverse types of work
  • Whether revalidation and appraisal are consistent for all doctors, regardless of their protected characteristics such as gender or demographic status such as job role.
