For non-standard GPs, such as locum and salaried GPs, and those who work in out-of-hours, walk-in-centres or similar environments, including the clinical audit information under the Review of Practice can be difficult.
GPs who feel that it would not be feasible for them to participate in clinical audit activity should produce alternative evidence of quality improvement activities and discuss this with their appraiser.
For such GPs, the RCGP has identified a range of alternative approaches to enable them to demonstrate evidence of quality improvement activities, which if conducted properly, should not be considered of any less value to conventional audit activity.
