In the Professional Competence Year beginning on 1 May 2023 and ending on 30 April 2024, doctors will be required to undertake and record the following CPD activity with their Scheme: 

  • 40 CPD credits (in any category: External, Internal, Personal Learning, Research or Teaching); and 
  • One Audit or Quality Improvement project 

Doctors will be asked to make a declaration about their Maintenance of Professional Competence (MPC) when renewing their registration in 2024. Doctors’ MPC declarations will be compared with Professional Competence Scheme data to monitor that they are meeting their MPC requirements. 

Inform your Training Body about any extended absence from your practice

Professional Competence requires that you conduct at least one Audit or Quality Improvement project every year.
