All trainees have the right to appeal an ARCP outcome. When this happens the Postgraduate Dean convenes an appeal panel which consists of:

  • Chair of the Panel
  • Royal College Representative
  • Two Consultants
  • Trainee Representative  
  • HR Representative
  • Lay Representative   

(The Gold Guide does not state that a Lay Representative is required on an Appeals Panel.  HEYH has taken the decision to include a Lay Representative on all its Appeal Panels.)

The HEE YH Appeals Guidance Document is available to assist Lay Reps when attending Appeal.
