Electronic Appraisal Tools
Two electronic portfolio tools are currently available.
1. Medical Appraisal Guide (MAG) Model Appraisal Form
This is free to use and can be downloaded, stored and completed without needing further internet access. Please save it and email to your appraiser when complete. Safely store the locked down version of the MAG form completed after your appraisal and returned to you by your appraiser.
The updated and improved second version of the MAG form was published earlier this year and GPs should be looking to transition to this new form as soon as possible, due to the fact that the previous version cannot be used beyond the present appraisal year i.e. ending March 2017. You can access the new version of the form along with a user guide via the link below.
Appraisers and doctors will have noticed there are some new features such as the ability for the appraiser to comment on each of the various sections of the MAG form to reflect how the appraisal conversation may flow.
Also the previous MAG form did have the facility to create a new form for the following year. The new form does not allow you to do this, so once the form is locked the appraiser will send it back to the doctor and the doctor must download a new MAG form for the following year.
Please click on this link to open the new MAG form:
- Users require Adobe Reader version 9.4 or above to open the form
- Microsoft Windows 7, Windows XP or Mac OS v 10.7 and above is also required
- The MAG form will not currently work on tablets or iPads
- If downloading from an NHS email you need to use the Private computer option when logging in as shown below
2. Revalidation e Portfolio
The RCGP has partnered with Clarity Informatics to produce the enhanced Revalidation ePortfolio toolkit for GPs. This portfolio is not free and requires internet access to operate.
The new enhanced revalidation system is now available at https://appraisals.clarity.co.uk.
This replaces the RCGP Revalidation ePortfolio tool and the previous Clarity Appraisal Toolkit.
Please note if you have not previously used Clarity you will need to register on Clarity's website. Please contact the Clarity helpdesk for user and registration support on 0845 113 7111.
