Role of the Appraisal Lead

Local Appraisal Leads are tasked with ensuring that all doctors working in their Health Boards have an annual appraisal, aided by the Primary and Secondary Care Administrative teams respectively.

The Appraisal Leads are responsible for organising the selection of prospective appraisers to attend the NES Appraiser Training Courses.

The Appraisal Leads are responsible for allocating the appraiser to an appraisee, aided by the local admin teams.

Appraisal Leads, in conjunction with their local Appraisal Steering Group, will monitor the quality of appraisal. A system should be developed to monitor the quality of appraisal by reviewing a sample of Appraisal Form 4s, and the appraisee and appraiser Feedback forms. Unsatisfactory appraiser performance will be addressed by the Appraisal Advisers/Leads.  This may involve further training for the appraiser.

Appraisal Leads are also responsible for ensuring that all appraisers are up-to-date and are able to share best practice.
