Annual Verification Process–1st May 2012 – 30th April 2013

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 September 2013.  We will randomly select doctors to participate in this process for the year 1st May 2012 – 30th April 2013. This process will involve checking the activities that have been uploaded to you Professional Competence Scheme (PCS) portfolio and the CPD credits assigned to each activity.

Prior to the commencement of this Verification Process, we will issue guidelines on the type of supporting documentation required.

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