This is to advise trainees that ARCP dates for 2018 have been confirmed.
Trainees who are due to complete their training during 2018 will be contacted individually by their TPD, Deputy TPD or by the Programme Support team if their final ARCP needs to take place outside the dates detailed below.
There is a single date for East trainees of 5 July 2018. All East trainees are asked to note this date in their diary. Venue and timings will follow later in the year.
The main panel will be held in Sheffield on 12 October 2018. Venue and timings will follow later in the year. But all trainees are asked to note this date in their diary.
Additionally, some ARCPs will be held on 2 July 2018 and we will be contacting individual trainees early in 2018 to advise if they are provisionally included in this list.
Trainees should note that the ARCP dates are later in the summer than in previous years.
The main annual ARCP panels will be held on 13, 20 and 27 September 2018. All trainees are asked to note these dates in their diary.
Trainees should note that the usual pre-ARCP document check for the September panels will be on Thursday 6 September. So trainees will need to bear in mind that all their ARCP preparations should be completed around the end of August.
Additionally, a panel is scheduled for 5 July 2018 primarily for trainees due to CCT in August.
Trainees new to the scheme should also note that either the Programme Support team or their TPD's office will be in touch nearer the time with full details. This is usually approx 8 to 12 weeks before their ARCP will take place. This will also confirm when and how to submit their Form R(b) and other standard pre-ARCP administration.
If trainees have any initial queries about their ARCP, either contact the Programme Support team or their TPD/Deputy TPD.
