Revalidation is the process by which licensed doctors are required to demonstrate on a regular basis that they are up to date and fit to practise.
It aims to give extra confidence to patients that doctors are being regularly checked by their designated body and the GMC and patients can have input by providing doctors with feedback. Doctors are required to have an annual whole practice appraisal in support of their revalidation.
The IDF is a designated body and has an appointed Responsible Officer in post. When applying to join the IDF doctors need to specify whether or not they wish to be connected to the IDF as their designated body; if they wish to become connected then they need to ensure that they do not have a higher prescribed connection.
The IDF Appraisal and Revalidation systems are open exclusively to IDF members. Any member wishing to join the system should contact our Revalidation Team on 020 3696 4080, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
