This guidance is based on the UK General Medical Council (GMC) protocol on revalidation recommendations for medical practitioners. It is aimed at responsible officers but all doctors working in Defence Medical Services (DMS) or for the Ministry of Defence (MOD) are encouraged to at least scan it, as it provides useful background information about revalidation recommendation.
Joint Service Publication (JSP) 950 leaflets 10-2-1 and 10-2-2 detail the processes for the appraisal of medical officers (10-2-1), and the revalidation of medical officers (10-2-2).
All documents will need to be printed and submitted in hard copy until a fully electronic form is available. Copies should be kept for individual records. Further information is available from Headquarters Surgeon General.
