Cornish doctors say tougher checks will mean better patient care.

From December they will have yearly appraisals to make sure they are fit to practice.

There will also be full examinations every five years.

West Cornwall GP Matthew Boulter says this time the extra bureaucracy is welcomed:

“It’d be naïve to assume when you left medical school ‘That’s it, I know everything’. Medicine is a changing subject so the annual appraisal is a very supportive process. You say ‘This is what I’m doing to make sure I’m keeping on top of my subject’, which is what doctors would want themselves to do and what the public would expect of them.

“This is one of those things which is necessary bureaucracy. It’s not overly onerous for doctors or appraisers to do and time is dedicated out of your annual calendar to go and have your appraisal. It’s something that doctors are willing to find the time to do in their busy lives”
