Revalidation for Licensed Doctors

Revalidation is the General Medical Council’s way of regulating licensed doctors. The aim is to support doctors in their professional development, helping to improve quality, patient safety and public confidence in the profession. Revalidation started across the UK at the end of 2012.

Licensed doctors including doctors in foundation year two and specialty training will have to revalidate, usually every five years. In addition, for doctors in postgraduate training, you will also revalidate when you receive your Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). This means that if your training lasts less than five years, your first revalidation will be at the point that you are awarded your CCT. If your training lasts longer than five years, you will be revalidated five years after the implementation of revalidation.

We are committed to enabling our doctors in postgraduate training to revalidate by providing as much information and support as possible and will provide you with regular updates.

The GMC website gives further information on revalidation.
