Best of the lot! Easy and relevant as both GP and appraiser. Learning diary is a life (well time!) saver.

please consider having a case reflection template, this could be added to either QIA or CPD section Please consider changing the credits to be able to enter time spent and then auto-calculated cpd value. e.g. 5mins. 10min, 15mins and they're equivalent. Please consider having a learning diary section to save the CPD section getting clogged with 100's of 5m entries. Otherwise a brilliant appraisal tool, easy to use, app easy to download, dashboard very helpful. I will be switching to using this one solely for future use. The psq's were done in a very timely manner and were dummy proof! The helps sections wee focused, relevant and simple to use.

Our reply: Thanks so much - always appreciate any feedback and suggestions. The Learning Diary is exactly that and you can decide which CPD entries to have in your appraisal by clicking Manage what's in my appraisal. We did have time spent before and we will look at adding this back.

There are a few modules now where I have noticed they mention documents or links will be attached but then are sadly missing. Similarly, links to current NICE CKS or guidelines would be useful

Great tool. There is a bug however - if you complete the general reflections text box for compliments and complaints, and then add individual complaint items, it seems to delete what was written in the text box.

Our reply: Thanks for taking the time to review the site and letting us know about that. The reflection has to be saved first before adding a new item and we will review the page design to try and make that more clear.

A useful website / service / app but it has a rather clunky counter-intuitive interface. I am trying to complete a 360 but am unable to find the link to self-assessment do am unable to proceed. No search facility for this site other than for FAQ. The app is more limited than the website which is a shame as so many of us work predominantly on smartphone or tablets.

Very informative. However, presentation style could be improved. Reading off slides does not really add anything to my learning. Mixing up presentations with pictures, style of power point would energise it!

Learning diary is fabulous and links so well with phone App. Web clipper is very good too. Going to try out the Appraisal toolkit this year; looks very intuitive and, being web-based, will mean I am much more likely to fill it in as I go along.

Brilliant website for organising all my relevant documents relating to revalidation. Very easy to update and use. Rather than having lots of certificates and bits of paper, I am now tidy and can be paper free. The videos are very informative too. I have just submitted and am confident it will all go through ok and that I have all the evidence online on this site if I need it.

100% this is so much easier to use than the excessively regimented RCGP appraisal setup and various others that I have tried, who are not intuitive and are leaden to use, with part-time technicians on the phones . It is great not to be timed out and lose your info if something happens during your entries. Congratulations to all the fourteen fish who worked on this website. Added bonus- there is always someone who is a doctor (or more intelligent )listening and watching when you contact the 14Fish, but do use the FAQ, they are good faqs. ........perhaps I should subtract my feedback or too many people will join up and the site will suffer from over-expansion......... Thank you for making a thankless desert of a task quite a bit easier, more intuitive and clear.

Our reply: Thanks that's really great to hear!

This is my 3d appraisal using the Fourteenfish Toolkit which has been amazingly improved each year and now so simple to use. Great value for money : I could not be more happy! The Patients Survey and MSF are easy to set up and results promptly received. Most helpful.

not sure I found putting the PDP entries in that easy, not very intuitive., perhaps just me otherwise compares well with severn site.

Our reply: Sorry about this - we have just completely updated the PDP as we were conscious it was not clear and to simplify it. Thanks so much for taking the time to feedback - always appreciated.

I have found Fourteen Fish website to be a tremendous help with the revalidation process. Logging any CPD and or Professional Dev and reflective summaries has been so easy especially since the format was changed to meet the NMC requirements. Having any patient and colleague feedback logged and audited was just brilliant. The Online help was very responsive to any queries I had and quickly resolved any matters to enable me to move on with myrevalidation process. Overall a superb website. Many thanks for the support.

(GP Locum)

I would like to be able to delete entries on my PDP without going into each individual one to do an edit please. Fourteen fish is great and so much better than Clarity and the MAG form, both as an appraise and appraiser. I really like the new app for my phone which makes recording CPD really easy.

The website provides a personal, bespoke service. An IT query was answered and resolved within an hour of me submitting it. In addition, data from my previous portfolio was transferred seamlessly by the FourteenFish team - an excellent service. I would recommend FourteenFish to any colleague. Well done, and thank you!

There doesnt seem to be an area for OH Practitioners just OH Drs? I am a Specilist Practitioner with a Degree in OH and a Masters in Public Health. I do not really 'fit' with the clinical NMC approach but this site is ideal. I will continue to populate an OH practice library/community and leave it open to all, hopefully others will join and add. Well done for developing this multi practitioner site to help all.

I love the iPhone app for the learning diary as it is quick and efficient and allows me to capture all my learning on my phone. I also use the e-mailing facility to send myself learning notes and weblinks for my learning diary. Being an appraiser and having used the 3 main softwares for appraisals, I would rate this as number 1. Keep up the good work.

My third appraisal on this tool. It is very easy to use particularly importing learning activities. It almost makes me want to buy a better phone so that I can use the app! One feedback note. I have just set my revalidation date and there appears to be no way of going forward on the calendar drop down other by one month at a time , which is a lot of clicks to go forward 5 years.

Our reply: Thanks so much for the feedback. Great point regarding the dates and though you can just type a date in the future this isn't obvious so we will improve this.

This was the first year I have used the revalidation toolkit (after checking with my appraiser that they used it too) and it has taken the pain of the clunky MAG form away and halved my prep time for the paperwork monster. I love the learning diary, that you can just send an email and that you can quickly add reflective notes and then tick to add to appraisal. I have recommended it to doctor and nurse colleagues. Great value for money and survey results turned around in less than one day -- brilliant! I will definitely use next year as well.

My appraisee and I had a very positive experience both uploading and reviewing the pre appraisal material and also in filling out the appraisal discussion/summary and completing all the necessary post appraisal documents. It was a very smooth and straightforward process, many thanks. I would also like to add that whenever I've needed to ask for technical support or have had any queries re the toolkit, I have always received a very prompt, helpful and friendly response.

Can I compliment you all at Fourteen Fish on this game-changing toolkit. This is the first year that I have kept up with logging CPD by using the main toolkit and mobile app on a regular basis and the intuitive nature of the design has made it extremely easy and an absolute joy. I wish you every success with its continued development as I cannot see why it shouldn't become the market-leader in revalidation toolkits.

(Hospital Doctor)

Thank you for your 'can do' attitude and 'no problem' approach which is why as an organisation you will succeed. My only feedback from colleagues is the name - some did not know to trust a 'fourteen fish' unsolicited e-mail approach and so did not complete the questionnaire (allegedly). I like the name, but get the point!

I can never find where to add paper FFT feedback forms!

Our reply: We are really sorry about this. Our aim to provide a service that saves you time, is easy to use and value for money and we are obviously not achieving this for you. The link to enter paper forms is on the setup page for patient feedback, it is www.leavemyfeedback.com/staff or you can just visit www.leavemyfeedback.com and there is a link if you are a member of staff. Following your feedback we have added this link to the home page for Patient Feedback. We have also added a feature so you can email members of staff with the instructions for this. We hope this helps and please don't hesitate to get in touch if anything isn't clear or if we can help with or improve anything.

Very easy for this survey to be ignored. Subject line needs to give name of Clinician and to say that a reply is needed ASAP

Our reply: Thanks for your feedback. The subject of the email invite does include the name of whom the 360 is for but not the recipient and we will look at changing this. The email asks if the survey could be completed that week and we also send a reminder after 10 days automatically if it has not been completed by then.

Difficult/non-intuitive to navigate around. It needs to be obvious how to email colleagues to appaise you & when these have been sent out.

i have found using this site easy and very user friendly. I think it would be a good option for nurses to use in the future for revalidation /appraisal purposes

(GP / Appraiser)

The reason I have chosen to use this tool for my own appraisal (and as an appraiser I have experience with a lot of tools) is because the team are so responsive to suggestions for improvements that make it work for me (and my complex portfolio career). I am delighted with the learning diary and e-mailing notes in at the time of an event. I always used to struggle to remember the dates of education I had been to - now the e-mail is on the log and the detailed notes are available for reference without cluttering up the appraiser's overview.

(GP)   

4 out of 5

great and easy to use..much better than MAG. Only thing is I couldnt work out how to delete a quality improvement activity entry that I had accidentally entered twice

Our reply: Thanks so much for that. Sorry the deleting wasn't more clear - if you click on an entry the link to delete it is then on the bottom right. We will look at improving this.

As an Appraiser in two Local Area Teams and therefore competent in all the available Toolkits, this is the best Toolkit I've used, really intuitive and saves typing time to allow more time for a professional appraisal.

(GP)

Really easy to use, very user friendly (easier than RCGP toolkit!) BUT my appraiser did not get it. The email to her got "lost" in cyberspace, so caused a bit of unnecessary panic on the day. If you could sort this out, I would give it 5 stars.

Our reply: So sorry to hear that your appraiser didn't get the initial email as this is naturally key to the whole process. We are reviewing this process to try and make sure this doesn't happen again.

I find this an easy way to work thtough my appraisal. Some appraisors don't seem too keen however it suits my needs and IT skills.

Our reply: Thanks for reviewing and great to hear you like it. Sorry to hear the feedback about appraisers. Our feedback from appraisers is extremely popular and we want to make the system easy to use for appraisees and appraisers alike so please do get in touch if anyone has any issues.

Very pleased with the site. Easy to use, especially the e-mail learning facility. Set out well. 'What's left' is very useful. I like the on line portfolio and although trialled as part of the 'Wessex Pilot' I shall look forward to using in the long term. Thank you.

I wanted to acknowledge the excellent service I have received from FourteenFish Limited with respect to my colleague and patient survey. You provided a most efficient and professional service for which I am truly grateful. I was also very impressed indeed with the speed of the feedback results which I needed quickly before my appraisal date. Thank you very much indeed for sorting this out so promptly. Your results with comparisons and comments are tabulated in a very readable and easily understood. I have already recommended your service to several of my other GP colleagues as being an excellent service. I would have no hesitation in recommending you further to any doctor to help with their appraisal process. I also consider that you provide an excellent service for the fee charged.

www.mylmc.co.uk/PatientSurveys/Setup On this page, Licence should be spelled with a C. This is England and C means it is a noun and S means it is a verb!

Thank you for creating a common sense appraisal toolkit which reduces the workload and sticks to the key elements needed in a straight forward way. I love the ability to email in learning notes for automatic adding – a really convenient way to put them directly in my appraisal record at the time. I was emailing them to myself previously and adding them manually in the weeks before my appraisal. I am impressed by the speed of response to queries and the development of the toolkit.

Good website I like the look of the appraisal toolkit but none of the appraisers have heard of it or use it in fact nobody I know uses it, is it gaining popularity

Our reply: Thank you for taking the time to rate our appraisal toolkit. In Hampshire and Dorset the toolkit is certainly popular (we have over 250 appraisals in progress) and it's gaining in popularity elsewhere. I am pleased you like it, we wanted to make a simple toolkit that made the process of preparing for and recording the appraisal simple. Both appraisers and appraisees seem to like it and we are always pleased to get any feedback to help us improve it.

The toolkit is good pre appraisal but it is not clear whether the pdp is looking at last years or next years . There is no obvious agreed pdp to be filled in during the appraisal which has lead to difficulty signing off

Our reply: Thank you for this. We have reflected on this and changed the structure and guidance on the PDP section.

Wonderful -- just so easy to use and relevant. I have dreaded the preparation for my appraisal for the last few years -- it has taken me up to 3 days to put my information on the Severn Appraisal Toolkit that we had been obliged to use -- what I had entered one year got lost and I have no credits to my name for that year! They coud not retrieve this information, despite dozens of tel calls and emails, so I now have a letter from my appraiser confirming that I had earned the 80 or so credits that I was claiming! I have recently discovered that other colleagues have also come to dread their appraisals because of this -- and indeed some have given up their registration after retirement, partly as a result. The appraisal recording process should be as easy and invisible as possible, so that it doesn't take time away from the actual CPD and the review of this in the appraisal/revalidation -- I believe that you have achieved this with your organisation and your website, and I intend to send an email to all my GP colleagues in Somerset to let them know how good it is. It is particularly encouraging for those of us who wish to practice back in developing countries after retirement (in only 2/12 for me) Thank you!

Very well designed User friendly I think it might be helpful for a new years appraisal to automatically have default setting for the previous years appraisers details as this will remain the same for most of us for 3 years in a row. We can change it when needed..just a thought? It's little things like that that are user friendly. Richard Peace

Our reply: Thank you for taking the time to suggest this and we have now added this feature.
