Key Principles of GP Appraisal in Wales

In Wales, a single system of GP appraisal is centrally managed by the Revalidation Support Unit, Wales Deanery (the Unit). GP Appraisal is a process which contributes to the development of individual GPs and therefore to the overall quality and safety agenda.


GP Appraisal Online

A single online system is provided to facilitate the appraisal system for GPs in Wales - the Medical Appraisal and Revalidation System (MARS). MARS is designed to facilitate the appraisal process and to enable GPs, Appraisers and Responsible Officers to meet the requirements of revalidation. Through MARS GPs, Appraiser and Responsible Officers can also access guidance materials and a range of CPD resources. To access MARS click here.

Appraisal, Revalidation and Clinical Governance

Annual appraisal will be a key component of Revalidation. Although appraisal and revalidation are separate processes, both are structured around the core responsibilities set out in the GMC's framework booklet Good Medical Practice.


GP Appraisal and CPD

The Unit is committed to retaining and building on the developmental aspect of appraisal. As the Unit also manages delivery of CPD for GPs in Wales, the two processes are closely linked:

• GPs are encouraged to reflect on their CPD as part of their annual appraisal
