Revalidation - Junior doctors

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
