During your appraisals you will need to demonstrate how you adhere to the GMP framework by providing the following supporting information:
- Continuing professional development (CPD)
- Quality improvement activity
- Significant events
- Feedback from colleagues
- Feedback from patients
- Review of complaints and compliments
While some of the details will provided by your designated body, a significant amount of this information will need to be collected by you. It is expected that you will spend at least half a day on personal development a month (about 6 days a year in total). Doctors often don’t realise how much they do, so you must log the books and journals you read and any meetings or events you attend.
You will also be required to collect the feedback from your patients and colleagues to reflect on.
