The challenge

 Trust need to ensure that their clinical staff have access to all relevant data and information needed to help them prepare for appraisals with  designated bodies. With their ever-increasing time pressures, how can clinical staff collate comprehensive and accurate evidence to support 
appraisal and revalidation, and how can they do this efficiently without creating an administrative burden that takes their time away from patients.

The solution

CLIP brings together all clinical indicator data into a single report, providing the most accurate consultant benchmarking available through a simple to use online tool. This can be managed locally by you or by your CHKS 
consultant. The reports support appraisal and revalidation and allow clinical staff to demonstrate they are continuing to meet the principles and values set out in Good Medical Practice.
