Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP)

An ARCP (Annual Review of Competence Progression) will take place for all doctors in postgraduate training (including LTFT doctors) at least once per calendar year. For most doctors this will take place in June/July, however some doctors may have their ARCP in October or December/January. Ad-hoc ARCPs may take place at other times of the year as required. The ARCP outcome will be decided at an ARCP Assessment Panel at which the doctor postgraduate in training will not be present, therefore all evidence must be on their e-portfolio before the ARCP Assessment Panel date. Doctors in postgraduate training will not normally attend the ARCP Assessment Panel, however the TPD may ask you to attend for an Educational Meeting which will take place after the Panel have decided the ARCP outcome. Doctors issued a developmental outcome (Outcome 2, 3, 4 or 5) must attend the ARCP Feedback Panel to discuss the outcome and objectives for the next period of training. The Feedback panel will take place on a different date to the Assessment panel.

Form R

The Form R is a mandatory requirement from the GMC for all ARCPs. From August 2022, only Part B of the Form R needs to be completed for every ARCP (the Form R is not required for Educational Reviews and the Form R Part A is no longer required for ARCP). The Form R must be completed within 4 weeks of the ARCP and by the deadline for evidence submission. If a Form R has not been completed within the month prior to the ARCP or is incomplete the panel will be unable to issue a satisfactory outcome.

 

It is important any ongoing or closed investigations/complaints since your last Form R are included.

 

You must make sure that all parts of the Form R are fully completed including the scope of practice section. The Scope of practice should include:

  • Each of your training posts if you are or were in a training programme;
  • Any time out of programme, e.g. OOP, maternity leave, career break, etc;
  • Any voluntary or advisory work, work in non-NHS bodies, or self-employment;
  • Any work as a locum. For locum work, please group shifts with one employer within an unbroken period as one employer-entry. Include the number of shifts worked during each employer-period.

IMPORTANT: From August 2022, all Form Rs must be completed via TIS Self Service (TSS). Old style form Rs (Word or PDF versions) will not be accepted.

To use TSS you must first sign up using the email address that NHS England have recorded for you. Trying to sign up with any other email address means the sign up process will fail.
