UK Physicians Fear New Revalidation Procedures Will Reduce Morale, Decrease Time with Patients and Belittle GP Professionalism, According to New TNS Healthcare Research
Date:8/6/2008

8 months -- includes a system for re-licensing the UK's 150,000 doctors to test their basic competence as medics.

Re-licensing will apply to all doctors and be based on a strengthened annual review process. Doctors on the GP and specialist registers also will face specific testing to confirm they can continue in their specialties.

More Support for Colleague Feedback than for Input from Patients or Caregivers

More than half of doctors agree that including feedback from colleagues will enhance the revalidation process. Physicians were not as positive about getting input from patients or caregivers. Only 41% of respondents agree that including patient feedback will improve the revalidation process, and just 27% see value in including caregiver feedback.

More than three quarters of physicians do recognize, however, that their ability to communicate with patients and caregivers is critical, indicating that it is just as important to assess communication skills as prescribing behaviors. In addition, more than two thirds believe that personal issues that could affect professional performance also should be appraised.

"Overall, only about half of GPs see any good in the revalidation process, and even fewer -- just 28% -- think it is long overdue," says Harris. "One of our respondents summed up what seems to be the predominant feeling, calling the new process 'a shallow political gesture [with] no cost benefit evidence to support it.' Another called it 'another costly exercise based on an unsound premise that pulls yet more time away from our patients.' Still others spoke about potentially resigning or moving overseas. Clearly, physicians have grave doubts about the new procedure and its potential effects."

More than 200 UK GPs Provide Insights

The TNS Healthcare findings are based on an on-line survey of 203 GPs from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The study took place in July 2008.
