Non GP Apprasiers

It has come to the LMC’s attention that the Area Team is using at least one non-GP to carry out GP appraisals in Birmingham .The reason that has been given for this is that the Area Team is "facing a potential short fall" in numbers of GP appraisers.The LMC was not consulted on the change to bring in non- GP appraisers, despite a requirement under the regulations for it to be consulted on the system of appraisal. The position of the LMC mirrors that of theGPC on this matter –itdoesnot support non -GP appraisers for GPsexcept in specific circumstances eg aGPwSI who wishes to be appraised by a consultant colleague.

However the Area Team have confirmed that ifGPs are unhappy with the allocation of appraiser, they may makea formal request for re-allocation. Should you be allocated a non- GP appraiser and your request for re- allocation is refused then please bring the matter to the LMC’s attention.
