In line with the best principles of collaborative practice, this library of other useful materials aims to support medical appraisal going forwards.

Documents here may have been designed for one particular setting but are offered in unlocked Microsoft versions so that you can take and adapt them rather than starting from scratch.

This section is currently being updated with materials relevant to the MAG 2022.
If you develop any resources for your geography, sector or specialty that you are happy to share, please contact Thank you in advance.


Please note that the materials in Microsoft applications may download directly to your computer rather than preview on screen.
