The vast majority of patients are happy with the care they receive from their doctors, according to recent findings. Analysis by one of the UK’s largest providers of medical revalidation, Equiniti 360 Clinical, revealed that more than 98% of patients said they are satisfied with the overall experience provided. 

Every five years, all doctors are required by law to complete a 360 degree appraisal process that includes feedback from their patients. Introduced in 2012, the revalidation process assures the General Medical Council (GMC) that all doctors are up to date and fit to practice.
