just to clarify about ARCP invites for January 15th & 16th
As per Gold Guide rules – all ARCP outcomes must be decided in absentia, ie with the trainee not in the room.
We believe, very strongly, that trainees should be seen face to face each year for “soft intel” and as part of our pastoral duty of care.
This year, HEE have decided that the format will be:
ARCP evidence review and outcome decision by panel in the morning, feedback and delivery of ARCP outcome with trainees in the afternoon.
All trainees due to ARCP will be getting invites from HEE to “self book” a slot for the afternoon to meet the panel.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2020
