The Professional Standards Department aims to ensure that agreed standards are maintained, developed and delivered across pathology services for the benefit of patients and the public.
The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme provides a framework by which pathologists maintain their knowledge and skills.
The purpose of revalidation is to assure patients and the public, employers and other healthcare professionals that licensed doctors are up to date and fit to practise. Revalidation will involve a continuing evaluation of your fitness to practise and will be based on local systems of appraisal and clinical governance.
Professional Performance provides formal advice to individuals, employers and external organisations to support the maintenance of standards of professional practice. This extends to include advice on return to work, remediation and the delivery of individual or service reviews.
