Revalidation is the General Medical Council’s way of regulating licensed doctors to give extra confidence to patients that their doctors are up to date and fit to practise. The GMC rolled out revalidation across the UK at the end of 2012.

Licensed doctors including doctors in foundation year two and specialty training have to revalidate, usually every five years. In addition, for doctors in postgraduate training, you also revalidate when you receive your Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).
