The responsible officer for the trust (Dr Timothy Ho, medical director) makes revalidation recommendations based on past appraisals.
All medical appraisals should be completed on the Trust’s CRMS system. Heatherwood and Wexham Park based doctors should access the HWHFT version: https://crms.thelearningclinic.co.uk/HWHFT. Frimley Park based doctors should access the FPHFT version: https://crms.thelearningclinic.co.uk/FPHFT.
Your appraisal deadline is 12 months from your last appraisal. If you have never done an appraisal before you should have been given a suitable deadline - if you are not sure please email Claire.Steel@fhft.nhs.uk (HWP) or Kirsten.Voss@fhft.nhs.uk (FPH).
You will receive several reminders about their appraisal starting 3-4 months ahead of their appraisal deadline you will be sent a reminder. Approximately 2-4 weeks before your appraisal deadline you will be sent a event profile containing details of incidents (rated moderate and above), complaints and claim.
Your chief of service or their deputy must agree your appraiser and your appraiser should be from within your directorate. You may have the same appraiser up to three years in a row (after which you must have a three year gap).
Short seminars on medical appraisal, including filling in CRMS forms, are held regularly at the PGMC at Wexham Park Hospital and also in various locations in Frimley Park Hospital. Click on the following intranet links for more information:
