Recommendations
RO can make one of 3 recommendations:
• Recommendation to revalidate
• Deferral
• Notification of failure to engage
Recommendations
Deferral
• Insufficient supporting information
• Information gaps
• Participation in a local or national process
– HR investigation
– Performance or remediation
• New date must be within 12 months
*this does not affect the license to practice
(Responsible Officer Protocol GMC)
Recommendations
Notification of failure to engage
• Confirms responsible officer cannot make informed
recommendation as the doctor hasn’t engaged
• Related to insufficient information in support of
revalidation
But notification of failure to engage:
• Is not a mechanism for addressing concerns about fitness
to practice
• It concerns doctors who have had sufficient opportunity
and support to engage in revalidation but have failed to do
so
• Is where there are no reasonable grounds for failure to
engage.

Framework
Last updated 16 March 2011 | 1
What’s new about appraisal
• Doctors are appraised on the whole of their scope of work
• Clinical governance information and information arising from
appraisal will be combined to enable the responsible officer to
make a recommendation about revalidation to the GMC
• The doctor will have to sign off statements about significant events,
complaints, probity, health, the appraisal portfolio, and GMC
requirements
• The appraiser will have to sign off statements about engagement
with appraisal, progress with the previous PDP and the
appropriateness of the new PDP and GMC requirements
Appraisal statements
• An appraisal has taken place that reflects the whole of the doctor’s
scope of work and addresses the principles and values set out in
Good Medical Practice
• Appropriate supporting information has been presented in
accordance with the Good Medical Practice Framework for
appraisal and revalidation and this reflects the nature and scope of
the doctor’s work
• A review that demonstrates progress against last year’s personal
development plan has taken place
• An agreement has been reached with the doctor about a new
personal development plan and any associated actions for the
coming year.
• no information has been presented or discussed in the appraisal
that raises a concern about the doctor’s fitness to practise.
