When is my ARCP due?
A review will take place approximately every 12 months from the start date of training, irrespective of full time or less than full time (LTFT) status. ARCPs are also required when a trainee progresses from one ST year to the next.
The final ARCP is usually held about 6 weeks before the end of training to allow time for application for a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).It cannot be held more than 8 weeks before the completion of training.
More information on ARCP panels can be found here.
Dates of the 2020 ARCP panel meetings are indicated below. LTFT trainees, or those with end dates other than the beginning of August, will be informed of their dates by the GP Support Manager.
