star this property answer text <p>Sir Keith Pearson’s review of medical revalidation, Taking Revalidation Forward (TRF), was published in January 2017. One of his recommendations was that:</p><p> </p><p>“The Departments of Health, in consultation with the GMC, should review the RO Regulations with a view to establishing a prescribed connection to a designated body for all doctors who need a licence to practise in the UK. They should also review the criteria for prescribed connections for locums on short-term placements.”</p><p> </p><p>As recommended by TRF, the Department is working with the General Medical Council, NHS England and other stakeholders to assess whether any amendments are needed to the Medical Profession (Responsible Officer) Regulations 2010 and 2013. No decision has yet been made.</p><p> </p><p>Any changes to the Medical Profession (Responsible Officer) Regulations 2010 and 2013 would require legislative change and would be subject to Parliamentary time.</p> more like this
