  • Appraisal in the north east: how it works

    In the North East, appraisals are booked through a website (link given below). New guidance has been given (jan 2016) that in line with NHS England policies appraisers will be allocated to apraisees rather than selected. Any conflict of interest must be declared to the appraisal team. All appraisers and appraisees will be linked via the Revalidation Management System (RMS) and all appraisees will be informed of their individual allocation via an automatically generated email

    All GPs are issued with a password and username by the area team. Appraisals are usually scheduled in your birthday month. If you want to be appraised outside of your birthday month you have to apply formally via the website deferment form. You are encouraged to use the MAG form as the main vehicle for your appraisal though some appraisers will be familiar with other systems (e.g. clarity). All guidance documents are available on either the NEPCSA booking site (see link below) or the HENE (Health Education North East GP appraisal page). You can obtain advice about appraisal from GP tutors (HENE) see the newsletters and contacts for appraisees below.


    Contacts for the area team are :
    Administration Assistants, Wendy and Bethany
    0113 824 7242
    England.cnegpappraisals@nhs.net

    Programme Manager, Rachel Turnbull
    0113 824 7248

    There is currently no funding for appraisal for locum GPs.
    Salaried GPs should be offered protected time for appraisal. For more information see the BMA's Salaried GP handbook and GP locum handbook.
