New guidance for GPs undertaking low volumes of clinical practice
Published: 17 October, 2018
New guidance about GPs undertaking a low volume (defined as fewer than 40 sessions per annum) of NHS General Practice clinical work has been published by NHS England, in collaboration with GPC, the RCGP and the GMC. It focuses on supporting the professionalism and insight of the doctor rather than regulatory intervention.
For those undertaking less than 40 clinical sessions a year, appraisal will now include a structured reflective template intended to facilitate reflection by the appraisee, and discussion within the appraisal, about your ability to provide safe quality care for patients, where necessary with the aid of mitigating interventions.
