Health Insight April 2002: Appointment

  Dr David Graham, Postgraduate Dean, Merseyside Deanery, has been appointed as Chair of a Steering Group to oversee the implementation of appraisal for all doctors in the NHS. The Department of Health in England has introduced the appraisal process to give doctors regular feedback on past performance and continuing progress, and to identify education and development needs. However, the appraisals could be at risk if primary care trusts refuse to fund doctors. The British Medical Association says it knows of at least two unnamed trusts which have said they will not pay for the assessments and under GPs’ terms of service there is no requirement for them to pay themselves.
