ARCP Dates

This page will be regularly updated, any queries should be directed to your deanery administrator. All ARCP 2019 dates are currently being organised, the dates confirmed are listed below. Blank dates are still to be organised, once confirmed this page will be updated.

The deanery has agreed that for ARCP, trainees are required to submit their evidence at least two weeks before the date of the ARCP (desktop review). The deanery expects a level of professionalism from all trainees and educational supervisors in this respect and requires trainees to work towards and meet this submission date. Failure to do so will result in the issue of an outcome 5, unless exceptional circumstances apply.

You will be notified of your ARCP by email, 4-6 months before, and 8 weeks before the date of the desktop review.
