Appraisal Surgery with Dr Ravi Ramanathan

Dr Ravi Ramanathan is an experienced GP appraiser and trainer, and will be providing advice on appraisal and revalidation at the MIMS Learning stand.

Come and ask him about your appraisal issues – whether you’re a newly-qualified GP getting to grips with appraisal for the first time, a locum struggling to meet requirements, or an experienced GP uncertain about changes to the appraisal system.

According to the latest guidance from the RCGP, your CPD activities should cover the whole of your practice. You must reflect on your CPD activities and discuss them at each annual appraisal. 

Appraisals were temporarily paused at the beginning of the Covid pandemic, and when they restarted, more emphasis was placed on professional development and wellbeing, and verbal reflection. GPs should not be required to supply large amounts of paperwork for their appraisals.

Dr Ramanathan should be able to help you with any questions or concerns that you have about upcoming appraisals and the revalidation cycle.
