Dame Janet Smith and the Shipman inquiry

The following paragraph is taken from the Fifth report Chapter 26:

'26.127 It appeared that Mr Brearley and the GMC agreed with the general proposition that the introduction of some mandatory elements and the provision of some mandatory types of information would give structure to appraisal and would make it more effective as a foundation for revalidation. There are several possible elements, including observed or videotaped consultations with patients, patient and peer questionnaires, reviews of medical records and, possibly, knowledge tests (which nowadays can be undertaken on-line). There are several types of information that PCOs could provide to appraisers, such as prescribing data and records of complaints or concerns about the doctor.'
