Doctors' feedback on our revalidation services:
"I have been very impressed with the entire revalidation process with Medacs. As this is the first time I am working outside a training programme I was a little anxious as to how the revalidation process would work. The information and support provided by the Medacs team was really good - everything was very well organised, there were useful resources available (including the online revalidation website) and the whole process went very smoothly. Everyone I came into contact with was polite and helpful and clearly knowledgeable about the revalidation process. The meeting I had with the appraiser was very thorough and again very organised - preparation had clearly been undertaken beforehand and I felt confident that my appraiser had familiarised himself with my details and was also knowledgeable about the appraisal and revalidation process. I would definitely recommend the Medacs revalidation team for anyone else who is currently working as a locum and needing to undertake an appraisal or go through revalidation."
“I have found the online educational toolkit to be easy to use and to cover all the mandatory training needed for the annual appraisal process. It provides many hours of free CPD and I have been grateful for the advice and support of the Medacs team who have responded quickly any time I have had any queries about the process. My annual appraisal was also a very easy and pleasant process with an appraiser who was warm, friendly and extremely helpful. His thorough knowledge of the appraisal system meant he had plenty of valuable advice to offer me."
