In accordance with the NHS England Medical Appraisal Policy, NHS England will accept appraisals completed in any format which is demonstrably in keeping with the Medical Appraisal Guide.
NHS England seeks to maintain dialogue with providers of medical appraisal software in England, through the Medical Appraisal Providers Forum. Members of the forum are invited to periodic meetings to discuss matters of mutual interest and hear commentary from NHS England about topics relevant to their product and their development. Membership is open to any provider of medical appraisal software, whether their product is commercially available or developed internally by a healthcare organisation for their doctors. An organisation who wishes to join the forum or be added to the list on this page should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The following information is intended to assist a doctor who is looking for an online provider to suit their professional needs by providing a list of currently known appraisal toolkit providers along with their contact details and their strapline about their product. It may also help organisations considering whether to commission a provider for their doctors.
Agilio Software | Primary Care (formerly Clarity Informatics)
“The original, market-leading medical appraisal toolkit. Trusted by doctors for over 20 years to simplify appraisal and revalidation, keep data safe, and provide unrivalled support whenever it is needed. Brought to you by the NICE Clinical Knowledge Summaries, TeamNet, and iLearn team.”
Edgecumbe Doctor 360
“The original and fully validated MSF tool for doctors, used by over 50,000 practitioners. A cost effective, high quality solution and outstanding customer service reviews, with 98% verifying a well presented report with easy to interpret results.”
NHS England does not endorse any provider of an appraisal platform, nor does it accept liability for the functioning or security of any appraisal vehicle provided by any external organisation. A doctor commissioning the services of an appraisal provider is therefore advised to consider these aspects with care before making a choice.
