Domain 1:

Knowledge, Skills & Performance

Skills & Performance - Discuss and reflect on aspects of the quality of the work you do


This is different from the Quality Improvement Activities in Domain 2 (audit etc). It is intended as a place for describing or demonstrating some of the ways in which you try to ensure a high standard of your work, and to demonstrate this with descriptive examples.

You can also describe areas that you see as a problem, for reflective discussion with your appraiser.

There are no essential pieces of supporting information for this section. Some suggestions are:

  • Your QOF performance, particularly in areas for which you hold the lead
  • Your other areas of personal clinical responsibility in the practice
  • Implementation of a guideline or formulary
  • Care planning in a nursing home
  • External markers of quality such as QPA
  • How you keep up to date in another role e.g. out of hours, as a trainer or in an external post
  • Induction and preparation for work as a locum
  • Reflective case studies that you have discussed in a small study group (such as PBSGL)

Further suggestions can be found in the Sessional GP Toolkit or the Out of Hours Toolkit.

A reflective template is provided below to help you write up your reflection.

An online CPD log has been added to SOAR so you can enter your CPD entries directly, rather than using this spreadsheet. However, if you wish to use the spreadsheet instead, please note the following instructions: This Excel spreadsheet is designed to help the user record their Learning Activities throughout the year. Save this spreadsheet to your computer (right-click > Save target as) and work on this as you go throughout the year. Upload the final version to SOAR when the time comes for your appraisal. Make sure you check the worksheet "Examples and Tips" for guidance. Although originally designed specifically for GPs, it can also be used by consultants (just ignore the impact scoring).
