Annual Verification Process : 1st May 2017 - 30th April 2018


As part of the arrangements agreed with the Medical Council, it is a requirement that each Postgraduate Training body undertake an annual verification of activities recorded by 3-5% of doctors enrolled on the professional competence scheme. This is a separate process to the Medical Council’s maintenance of professional competence audit processes.


We intend to commence the Verification Process in May / June 2018.  We will randomly select doctors to participate in this process for the year 1st May 2017 – 30th April 2018. This process will involve checking the activities that have been uploaded to a doctor's Professional Competence Scheme (PCS) portfolio and the CPD credits assigned to each activity.


This is a supportive exercise aimed to promote confidence in what doctors are recording, identify shortfalls and provide support to assist you in meeting the Professional Competence Scheme requirements.
