All doctors who hold GMC registration with a licence to practice are required to go through the revalidation process every five years.To enable the Responsible Officer to recommend you for revalidation, they are required to review five completed years of appraisal history along with 360 patient and colleague feedback. Upon joining Great Ormond Street Hospital, you must ensure that you connect to the Trust as your designated body for revalidation purposes.

Revalidation is your own responsibility and is necessary for maintaining a licence to practice. All doctors who do not belong to a Deanery need to take part in the annual appraisal and 5-year revalidation processes within the Trust.

The annual appraisal must be conducted electronically on the GOSH Premier IT system. If you do not yet have access to this, or for information relating to your revalidation, contact Susan Harding (ext 4585, email revalidation.support@gosh.nhs.uk).

Should you have any queries regarding appraisals or revalidation, please contact the Revalidation Support Team at revalidation.support@gosh.nhs.uk.

Study leave is available to all junior doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Entitlement is dependent on post and length of rotations.

All study leave applications must be returned to the PGME department at least six weeks prior to the event date. All applications must be submitted by the 20th of each month.

Study leave funding can be used for courses, conferences and research activity. Any funding or leave not taken cannot be carried over. Study leave entitlement (days and reimbursement allowance) will not be approved, if it falls outside the current rotation or post.

For doctors in NHSE training posts, study leave the entitlement is calculated in line with NHSE guidelines. For doctors in trust appointed posts study leave will be calculated in line with the financial year.

Study leave is discretionary and it needs to be approved by your Educational Supervisor and your Rota co-ordinator.
