RCGP Scotland has worked with NHS Education for Scotland (NES), formerly Scottish Council for Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education (SCPMDE), the Scottish General Practitioners’ Committee (SGPC) and the Scottish Executive Health Department (The STI Clinic) to jointly develop a paper outlining the proposed mechanisms for an annual appraisal scheme for General Practitioners in Scotland.
