Recertification of Membership (MFSRH / FFSRH)

Why recertify your MFSRH or FFSRH?

It is important that medical professionals have the necessary knowledge & skills to give patients the safe, effective and individual advice that they deserve and need. Recertification supports individuals to demonstrate they have maintained knowledge, skills and standards during their appraisals, with employers and for revalidation. You are expected to recertify your MFSRH or FFSRH every five years from certification. For more information please read this guidance in full.

Recording your CPD

We recommend that you collect and record evidence to support your record of CPD activities within a structured portfolio such as an online CPD diary (if available) or using an Excel spreadsheet and folder. We suggest that activities and reflections are uploaded &/or collated whilst current. Please follow this link for an example spreadsheet that you may wish to use. We also recognise that you have recorded data through other colleges such as the RCOG. The FSRH will accept your RCOG logbook as supporting evidence.

How to apply for recertifcation 

You are required to self-declare that you have achieved the required CPD via an online application form.  You are required to reconfirm you have read and abide by the FSRH Personal Beliefs Guidance. You are not required to provide a record or evidence of your CPD as part of the application. You may however, be requested to provide a record and evidence of your CPD if you are selected for audit.
