How to prepare for your revalidation

There are a number of things you should be doing to get ready for revalidation.

  • Have an annual appraisal

You will need to have an appraisal every year: you won’t be able to revalidate otherwise.

  • Collect your supporting information

There are six types of supporting information that you will be expected to provide, reflect on and discuss at your annual appraisal. Some only need to be presented once in each revalidation cycle.

You should select your supporting information carefully. It is the quality, rather than the quantity, that the appraiser and responsible officer (RO) will want to see.

To support all public health professionals, regardless of their training background, FPH has produced specialty-specific guidance for revalidation.
