<p>GPs undertaking the Induction and Refresher (I&R) Scheme in England spend a period of between 4 weeks and 6 months in placements in a General Practice setting. During this time they have to complete a number of workplace-based assessments, and their Educational Supervisor is required to complete a report which confirms that they have demonstrated an adequate level of competence to enable them to be accepted by NHS England onto the National Medical Performers List without conditions. This report describes a process (using an online survey completed by Educational Supervisors) of reviewing and improving the end-of-placement report forms to make them clearer and easier to use. The word pictures used in the revised forms could be adapted to become a competency framework for members of the primary care workforce.</p>
