TTM Healthcare are now a Designated Body with the General Medical Council.

As a designated body TTM Healthcare will keep you fully informed of how we will support our full-time locum doctors through the revalidation process along with the support of our experienced responsible officer, Dr. Ian Grant.

General guidelines to who your Designated Body for Revalidation should be:

· If you are employed permanently in an NHS organisation, then you will be linked to their RO.

· If you work through NHS Professionals, then you will be linked to their RO.

· If you are registered with a number of locum agencies then the designated agency RO for the agency you have worked for most in the previous calendar year will be your RO the next year.

· If you organise most of the work yourself, then your RO will be the RO for the PCT where your address is, that is the address you are registered with the GMC.

Revalidation, what does it mean?

The purpose of revalidation is to assure patients, the public and other healthcare professionals that licensed doctors are up to date and are practising to the appropriate professional standards. If you hold GMC registration with a licence to practise, then you will be required to participate in revalidation.

Our Responsible Officer, Dr. Ian Grant, will make a recommendation to the GMC about your fitness to practise, based on your appraisals over the last last 5 years along with information derived from local clinical governance processes. The GMC will require assurances that each doctor is meeting the required standards and that there are no known concerns about a doctor’s practice. The RO makes the recommendation, however it will be for the GMC to decide whether the doctor concerned should be revalidated.

The regulations also state that licensed doctors should relate to one and only one Responsible Officer.

A designated body as far as locum agencies are concerned are those which are participants in the GPS (previously Buying Solutions) national framework agreement for the supply of medical locums. Medacs Healthcare is a designated body.
