Anaesthetic Training Update - 28 May 2020 (ARCPs)

Published: 28/05/2020

UPDATE! A recording of the HEE webinar on ARCPs from 3rd June is now available on YouTube

UPDATE! For those awarded an outcome 10.1 at the end of ST4 with outstanding units of training to carry into ST5:

The simplest solution may be to complete an Intermediate Level Progress Report (on the Lifelong Learning platform) at the end of ST4 and then complete the Intermediate Level Training Certificate when they have completed all the intermediate units, with a backdated start date for ST5 on it.

This will give a record of which units of training are being carried on to ST5 without needing to get them individually approved by the Training, Curriculum, and Assessments Committee (the standard process) and without delaying prospective completion dates unnecessarily.

This will only apply to those awarded an outcome during summer 2020 ARCPs.  We request that any units of training deferred are completed in the first 6 months of ST5.

This guidance predominantly covers the changes in requirements for ARCPs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please note that this information is correct at the time of publication but some areas may be subject to change.  A pdf version of this update can be downloaded from here.
