I review the practice of others – can I record these hours for CPD?

These may be claimed at an equivalent level under Research and Teaching, however a medical practitioner's PCS activity must be balanced and mirror his/her clinical practice and activity and reflect his/her scope of practice across all domains of practice. It is mandatory for Medical Practitioners to maintain competence in all the areas of practice and medicine in which they engage including involvement on an occasional or infrequent basis.

A medical practitioner does not comply unless their PCS activity incorporates the full range of professional activity.
