“We are really pleased with the take-up of the RCGP Revalidation ePortfolio – and the positive feedback we have received form GPs already using it,” said Professor Nigel Sparrow, the RCGP lead for revalidation.

“As revalidation is officially introduced, it demonstrates how individual GPs are approaching the process positively as a way of continuously developing their own knowledge and skills to benefit patient care.”
