Winter ARCP's will go ahead for all Anaesthesia & FICM trainees that would be due an annual review.
All ARCPs will be held in absence. In the event of an unsatisfactory outcome, a virtual meeting will be arranged in the following 7-14 day period.
The checklists for training have been revised to accommodate the continuing ARCP derogations to March 2021 and the changes to training during the COVID 19 pandemic. They can be found below. These include a School specific COVID ARCP checklist which summarised the mandated and optional LLP evidence. The RCoA have produced additional ARCP COVID Checklists which more details on each component of the ESSR, for Trainees and ESs to follow.
Please discuss with your ES and arrange an appointment for your ESSR completion in good time.
The format and outcomes for ARCP are based upon the guidance from the RCOA and the Statutory Education Bodies of the 4 nations which are within the documents listed below and available on the RCoA and HEIW COVID-19 website.
You will receive information via HEIW on a date for review and instructions on completion of your Form R, which must be uploaded to your LLP.
