Patient and Colleague Feedback

Suitable for Locum and Sessional Doctors including those working in Out of Hours

About Patient and Colleague Feedback

An integral part of Revalidation and Strengthened Appraisal, patient and colleague feedback enables you to gain valuable insight into how you are perceived as a professional. Including:

  • Patient Feedback
  • Colleague Feedback
  • Self Assessment

How does it work for Locum and Sessional Doctors?


Feedback is usually completed at the single place of practicing for the majority of doctors, however many locum and sessional doctors can work across 2 or more sites. All of the information provided here is still relevant to locum and sessional doctors but we have tried and tested methods to allow you to collect feedback based on your individual working practices.

Patient and Colleague Feedback has already been completed by numerous locum and sessional doctors and the flexibility of our processes has met their required needs. Please contact us if you would like to know more about how this will work for you.
