To avoid problems at your final ARCP it is strongly recommended you check through the list carefully.

 

This checklist spells out the common pitfalls that cause problems on the day of final ARCP e.g. CPR certificate not stating AED training.

Final ARCP Checklist

Applying for Your Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT)

 

1) Apply to be placed on the GP register.

The GMC should email you 2-3 months before your anticipated CCT and invite you to apply via the GMC website.

Log in then go to 'My Registration', then 'My Applications'

 

2) Update your indemnity status with your defence union

 

3) Apply for your performers list status to be updated from trainee to fully registered GP via your local primary care support england team.

You will require a copy of your CCT and your updated indemnity certificate. https://www.performer.england.nhs.uk/

 

4) Choose an annual appraisal system (MAG form, Clarity or RCGP)

 

The following table summarises the number of assessments required per training year. It should be emphasised that this is a minimum number and to achieve the Capabilities to the required standard, further assessments may be required.

Less than full time (LTFT) placements

For trainees who are less than full time the same number of assessments need to be completed per ‘training year’ (this will be longer than a calendar year). For example a trainee on a 50% less than full time rotation will take 2 years to complete a ‘training year’

*CSR to be completed in a primary care post if any of the following apply: The clinical supervisor in practice is a different person from the educational supervisor. The evidence in the ePortfolio does not give a full enough picture of the trainee and information in the CSR would provide this missing information, and either the trainee or supervisor feel it is appropriate.
** The interim ESR review can be completed at the mid point of each year only if the trainee is progressing satisfactorily. If there are any concerns about the trainees performance or they have had an unsatisfactory outcome in their previous ARCP then the full ESR will be required.
***If a trainee does not have a placement within a specific training year that includes children, then it is not mandatory (but still recommended) to record and document their learning on Child safeguarding.
