The Form R has now been split into 2 - Form R Part A and Form R Part B. Part A is completed upon inital registration for a training programme and Part B is completed annually. If you have recieved an email asking you to complete a Form R ahead of your ARCP, please scroll to the bottom of the page for more information and links to Form R Part B.
Upon registering for your specialty training programme within Health Education England - Yorkshire and the Humber (HEEYH) all trainees are required to complete Form R Part A (Registration Form). Without this completed Form, HEE YH cannot register you on the Postgraduate Dean’s Database or retain your National Training Number (NTN issued to run-through trainees only). Doctors appointed to Core programmes and Fixed Term Specialty Training Appointments (FTSTA) will be issued with a Reference Number (DRN) and Local Education and Training Boards will keep a record of trainees and their achievement of competencies.
All new trainees will receive an email with their NTN/DRN and the GMC approval code to aid the process of registering with their respective Colleges. Once HEE YH has received a trainee’s Form R Part A, details will be forwarded to the relevant College to complete the registration process. Due to the large volume of Form Rs received, HEE YH will not acknowledge receipt of the Form R, nor will they send you a copy of your Form R with the Postgraduate Dean’s signature.
Please download Form R Part A and, if you are registering for a programme for the first time, the relevant 'Conditions of Joining' document below
Return both documents completed and signed, together with a passport sized colour photograph (signed and dated on the back) and the Programme Support team will then send you confirmation of your NTN and the GMC approval code.
Each trainee also has the responsibility of completing the Form R Part B for Revalidation purposes on an annual basis. Revalidation is the process by which licensed doctors are required to demonstrate on a regular basis that they are up to date and fit to practise. Please see the Revalidation section of the website for more information.
You will be asked to complete the Form R Part B ahead of your Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP).
Please ensure you read the guidance to assist you in completing Form R Part B.
