The Faculty Board has agreed to allow doctors without a formal Faculty qualification, who spend the majority of their practice in occupational medicine, to access the Faculty’s Responsible Officer (RO), for the purpose of revalidation. In order to access the Faculty RO, doctors should join the Faculty and thus create a formal prescribed connection, in accordance with the Responsible Officer Regulations, 2010. Doctors will be asked to complete an application form and this will be assessed for eligibility. Further details are outlined here.
If you are aware of any doctors who may fall into this category and require access to an RO, you are welcome to inform them of the option to access the Faculty RO, subject to the approval of their application.
