There are two document fields on your profile called 'Reference 1' and 'Reference 2'.
These fields are for two clinical references, provided by GPs you have previously worked for or currently work with.
The two referees must be GP Principals or Clinical Leads who have agreed to provide references relating to your clinical work during two recent (within the last 3 years) or current posts.
The Clinical Governance team will not accept your referee details in these fields.
If you already have clinical references, or are easily able to provide these yourself, please upload them to the two reference fields on your profile.
Below are the requirements the Clinical Governance team will look for to be able to approve your references:
- These are dated within the last 3 years
- These are signed/stamped by your clinical referees
- Must make reference to your clinical knowledge/skills, professionalism and communication with both patients and colleagues (we cannot accept merely factual references)
Alternatively, you can provide the Clinical Governance team with details of your two clinical referees, and we can contact them on your behalf.
You can either email the team with your referee details, or add these to the end of your CV before uploading this to your profile.
Please include your referees' professional email addresses, e.g. doctors.org or nhs.net email addresses. This is to help us ensure that your referees are also qualified doctors.
We will send your referees our own pro formas, which will then be uploaded to the 'Reference 1' and 'Reference 2' fields on your profile when returned.
Please note that the quickest way to get your references returned is to advise your referees to look out for our emails, as these can sometimes be missed.
If you'd like to chat with a member of our Clinical Governance team about your documents, please call 020 3790 7463 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
