Maurice Conlon, FRCGP

Maurice Conlon, FRCGP

NHS England Clinical Advisor, Professional Standards Team, Medical Directorate, NHS England

Chair
Maurice believes well supervised and supported doctors deliver better and safer care.
Maurice became interested in appraisal in 2001, publishing his seminal paper Appraisal: the catalyst of personal development in the BMJ in 2003. He was a founding member and National Director of the NHS Revalidation Support Team (RST) 2008-11, which produced the Medical Appraisal Guide (2013).
In 2013 Maurice joined NHS England as clinical advisor to the Professional Standards Team. He has led work bringing multiple PCT-based policies into the single NHS England Medical Appraisal Policy (2014). His subsequent work centres on supporting the Responsible Officer and Appraisal Networks to improve quality and consistency in appraisal and governance, producing papers such as: Improving the Inputs to Medical Appraisal (2016), Information flows to support medical governance and the responsible officer function (2016), and the Responding to Concerns Guide (2017). His view: revalidation is only as good as the appraisal and governance processes behind it.
Maurice has worked as a General Practitioner since 1993 at Ridgacre House Surgery in Birmingham. The practice was one of 4% rated ‘Outstanding’ by CQC in 2016.
