RCGP Survey on  the Second Cycle of Appraisal and Revalidation
Request for GPs to complete a questionnaire

The RCGP wishes to  support GPs in their  personal and professional development and in  making quality improvements in their practices, despite the pressures currently faced by the NHS and primary care. The RCGP has a key role in setting standards for all general practitioners, but also in providing support and guidance for its members. It  wants  to hear from you about how well It has  achieved what it  set out to do, and what it could have done better. Your input to this questionnaire will be used to inform the RCGP position in the negotiations and planning for the second cycle of revalidation and to improve the support it we can provide.

The questionnaire is available at Survey Monkey until the 13 September 2015

Best wishes
