External quality assurance of regional pilot
Review of NHS Highland medical revalidation pilot
NHS Highland took part in a
pilot of the Scottish Government’s implementation of enhanced
medical appraisal and revalidation.
The pilot aimed to identify whether the information
required to support medical appraisal in secondary care is
available across all specialties.
Following the NHS Highland pilot, the Scottish
Government commissioned Healthcare Improvement Scotland to
externally quality assure (EQA) the pilot to review and optimise
the learning from the NHS Highland experience.
The findings and recommendations in this
assurance work have since been progressed by the Scottish
Government Health Directorates (SGHD) to establish processes to
support medical revalidation in Scotland.
