The purpose of this paper is to describe the use of a web‐based process of 360‐degree appraisal in teaching and district general hospital settings.
A total of 554 consultants were appraised by both peers and patients with over 16,000 replies using a web‐based questionnaire and patient survey.
Overall results were satisfactory, although in the areas of communication, team working and leadership there was evidence of room for improvement in 1 in 12 doctors especially in the fields of psychiatry, medicine and A&E. Those being appraised found the process positive.
The study demonstrates a simple pragmatic solution to consultant 360‐degree appraisal.
