To support revalidation doctors are required to discuss any Serious Clinical Incidents (SCIs) at their Appraisal, with a particular emphasis on those that have led to a specific change in practice or demonstrate learning. The Appraiser will be interested in any actions that the doctor has taken or any changes which have been implemented to prevent such events or incidents happening again. Areas for further learning and development should be reflected in the doctor's personal development plan and CPD. The Board is currently working on a system whereby a doctor will be able to request a "SCI certificate" similar to the Complaints Certification process. In the meantime, a doctor should bring along their own log of any SCIs recorded in the preceding year up to the date of the Appraisal meeting.
