Revalidation and registration renewal is a legal requirement for healthcare professionals to continue to practice.

Library Services can help support your Continuing Professional Development during the revalidation process. We offer access to a range of electronic databases and resources, both via the NHS through NICE Evidence, and via Imperial College London. We offer training on how to search these resources and find articles, guidelines and other types of document you may need, both on a group and 1-2-1 basis. See Training or contact your campus library for more details.

If you can’t access the book or article you need directly, you can use our Document Delivery to obtain it.


Owing to the COVID-19 situation, the national health care regulators have produced new guidance regarding revalidation. This can be seen below.
