Continuing professional development (CPD) is a major approach for doctors to maintain competence and enhance their performance. Up to date information and skills are provided to support professional goals and improve knowledge of the latest developments in areas such as clinical research and practice improvement. The Medical Council Act 1999 has been amended to empower the Medical Council to enter the name of a General Practitioner or a Specialist in the Annual List subject to the practitioner having followed such Continuing Professional Development Courses or Training Programmes (CPD) as may be prescribed by the Council".
