All doctors employed by NHSGGC must register with the Scottish Online Appraisal Resource (SOAR). This will assist greatly in record keeping and ensure that through audit, the Appraisal process can be quality assured. To register with SOAR please access the following website: http://www.appraisal.nes.scot.nhs.uk/.
The current position within Secondary Care is that all Form 4s must be completed on SOAR. It is likely that SOAR will become mandatory for the recording all Appraisal information for medical staff employed by NHSGGC. If you require guidance on how to get started on SOAR, you can access this via the following link: http://www.appraisal.nes.scot.nhs.uk/help-me-with/appraisal/appraisal-this-year/getting-started.aspx.
