View the agenda
This national conference focused on appraisal leadership and the relationship between governance and appraisal in NHS England, through workshops, group discussion and sharing best practice. The conference was arranged by the All England Appraisal Network. Post conference feedback from the National Appraisal Lead to delegates noted that NHS England Lead Appraisers show a clear and strong commitment to meaningful, robust and supportive (‘compassionate’) appraisal that motivates and inspires doctors to give of their best. There was also a clear sense that the local teams, which have been through so many logistical challenges, are now operating with ever-increasing effectiveness, and not a little pride that NHS England still leads the field in achieving high appraisal rates. NHS England Lead Appraisers engagement with the session on quality assurance indicated a widespread level of recognition of the reality that we will get the most out of appraisal by supporting and effectively reviewing the appraisers’ work.
