To be connected to Faculty’s revalidation services a doctor needs to be either a Diplomate Member/Member/Fellow/Revalidation Subscriber of FPH and in good standing.
FPH process is as follows:
- A completed registration pack (request this from email@example.com)
- Paid Annual fee of £1300 (2023/24), this will become payable on taking up the FPH Revalidation Service
- Inclusion to L2P, online appraisal system
- Allocation of Appraiser
To provide a revalidation service, we have to charge an annual fee to the doctors connected to us. We do not receive any funding for our statutory duties in providing the revalidation service, and the FPH Board has agreed that it is unreasonable to provide this service, which is not a universal requirement to all our members, out of annual subscriptions.
We review the revalidation service fee each year, to take into account the number of doctors using the service, as well as any additional costs and price changes. We aim to keep the cost we charge to members as low as possible. Our appraisal cost at present is £400; this is embedded in the fee and is what we pay our team of FPH appraisers for each appraisal they conduct.
The fee to access the FPH revalidation service during 2023/24 is £1,300.
L2P online portfolio
FPH uses L2P as its online revalidation and appraisal management system. The system allows doctors and appraisers connected to us to enter information and upload documents before and after the appraisal meeting.
It has been designed with the appraisal meeting in mind, in a logical manner that mirrors how the appraisal conversation may flow. It allows our appraisers and responsible officer (RO) easy access to the relevant supporting information and documents. It also assists the revalidation team in monitoring how all of our doctors are progressing, and to provide support where necessary.
