Trainee Revalidation

Trainee Revalidation


Unlike medical appraisal for primary and secondary care doctors, Trainee annual appraisals are organised and recorded separately outside of SOAR.  If you are unsure of the processes in place for this, please contact your Deanery Region for further assistance.


In Scotland, NES is responsible for the revalidation of Doctors in Training.

With regards to SOAR, Trainee doctors are asked to complete their annual self-declarations on Health, Probity, Complaints and Work History; which is reviewed and signed off by their Educational Supervisor prior to ARCP reviews.

Revalidation is a process that happens in the background.  Unless specifically requested by the Responsible Officer or the Postgraduate Dean, Trainees are not expected to undertake any additional tasks.
