Our multi-source feedback systems

We have tools to help consultant psychiatrists with personal development by providing structured feedback in two of the GMC’s core domains – working with colleagues and relating to patients.

Did you know the College has two multi-source feedback systems available to psychiatrists to help with personal development?

ACP 360 is our 360-degree feedback system which helps you log the feedback you need for appraisal and revalidation.

ACP 360 covers eight domains: communication, availability, emotional intelligence, decision-making, relationships with service users, relationships with relatives/carers, relationships with other psychiatrists, and relationships with their team.

Once data has been collected, you get a report presenting your results, and showing your results in the context of national benchmarks.

ACP 360 is different from other 360 feedback systems as it is designed and validated specifically for psychiatrists, by psychiatrists. Members are also able to complete multiple assessments within their membership period (five years) for no extra cost, and we can release reports instantly to you (providing you have received the minimum number of survey responses from patients and colleagues).

ACP 360 provides detailed and in-depth feedback as reports systematically collate feedback from colleagues and patients on the key domains, and free text comments on a participant’s areas of strength and areas for improvement can be provided. We also offer discounts for individuals renewing their membership, and for new organisations who wish to sign up multiple psychiatrists to use the system.

We also offer a Multi-Source Assessment for Expert Psychiatric witnesses (MAEP). The tool is designed to help expert psychiatric witnesses collect feedback from people involved in court cases, such as solicitors and barristers. Expert witnesses can use this information for appraisal purposes and it will not be publicly available.
