The concordat describes the legal requirements for organisations who employ doctors, how Public Health England (PHE) through the Office of the Responsible Officer delivers annual professional appraisal and medical revalidation and supports local authorities.

It also outlines the expectations of support from local authorities in contributing to this process so that PHE can deliver its statutory Responsible Officer obligations.
