This chapter focuses on the revalidation process, where all licensed doctors are required to demonstrate periodically their continued fitness to practise, both clinically and in terms of professional conduct. In addition, specialist doctors need to demonstrate that they meet the standards that apply to their particular medical specialty. The scope of revalidation, standards for revalidation, appraisal, and remediation and support for doctors are discussed.
