Summer 2020 COVID-19 ARCP CHECKLISTS
The new TSC guidance on ARCP can be found here
Trainee ARCP FAQs are available here


The COVID-19 pandemic has created an exceptional set of circumstances for trainees, trainers and training. As a result the Training Standards Committee have adapted the ARCP requirements from the 2015 curriculum to a "minimum data set" for trainees. The 2015 checklists will no longer be used until further notice.


A revised version of the Faculty governance statement is available on the portfolio. This is important for trainers to fill out for all trainees ST3 and above. In particular the revised wording will cater for those trainees who have not been able to complete the ATLS/ APLS  etc. due to COVID-19

The ARCP checklists to be used until further notice can be found below.  The initial COVID-19 checklists published on 8 May 2020 have been revised as of 22 May to ensure consistency with published guidance and the checklists published for ACCS.  If the previous version of the checklist was filled, this does not need to be redone.
