Trainee Revalidation


Revalidation is the General Medical Council’s way of regulating licensed doctors to give extra confidence to patients that their doctors are up to date and fit to practise. Revalidation started on 3rd December 2012 and the GMC expects to revalidate the majority of Licensed Doctors for the first time across the UK by March 2016.

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) or CESR CP.

NHSE Education North East is committed to enabling its doctors in postgraduate training to revalidate by providing as much information and support as possible and will provide you with regular updates.
