PHE full day workshop sessions for UKPHR specialist registrants using SARD

PHE have designed a series of full day workshops (dates below), in preparation for the UKPHR revalidation scheme for specialist registrants using SARD. The workshop will also focus on how to write a PDP as part of the annual professional appraisal. These sessions are for UKPHR specialists under PHE’s remit only.

Morning session 10:00-11:15am

PHE’s Office of the Responsible Officer will provide a draft demonstration of the SARD portfolio sections subtly tailored for Specialist Registrant use, for annual professional appraisal purposes. This session aims to encourage feedback from long and short terms users on the demonstration site to ensure the content in SARD is tailored and as equivalent as possible to GMC requirements.

Afternoon session 11:45 am – 15:30pm
