"Data collection for the colleague survey should be managed by an independent survey organisation. Doctors provide the survey organisation with a list of their nominated colleagues, and their e-mail or postal addresses." GMC, 2012
The General Medical Council suggest that each doctor nominates 20 colleagues to complete the colleague questionnaire (10 medical and 10 non-medical if possible). The aim is to collect a minimum of 15 completed questionnaires.
After you forward your colleagues email addresses, we will invite your colleagues to complete the GMC feedback questionnaire online. It only takes a few minutes and our online surveys use SSL enabled accounts to encrypt the responses as they are transmitted. You are welcome to sample our software using this shortened survey.
DrMSF will complete everything else. We collate and analyse the response. We remain independent of the doctor, appraiser and responsible officer. The information in your report is checked to ensure that respondents remain anonymous where necessary, and forwarded to you with a password for protection.
