Annual Review of Competency Progression

The ARCP assessment procedure for General Practice Specialty Trainees (GPST), is known as the Annual Review of Competency Progression (ARCP) and takes place once a year for all trainees regardless of whether you are training full time or part time. 

For further information about the ARCP procedure or if you have any questions, please email the Helpdesk.

Please Note: GPSTs cannot claim travel expenses to an ARCP.

Before every ARCP GP Trainees need to complete the following:

  • Enhanced Form R - All Doctors in Training are required to complete the Enhanced Form R and the School of Primary Care are required to have this available in advance of the ARCP. On the form, you are required to declare if you have been involved in any complaints, significant events, or investigated incidents since your previous Form R.
  • During the Covid-19 pandemic a temporary Form R Part B which includes a self-declaration will need to be completed alongside your Form R. Download the file to your desktop to view. 
  • Wider Scope of Practice - please download and complete together with your Enhanced Form R if you have undertaken any work outside of your training.

Please ensure your Form R Part A & Part B is uploaded to the Compliance Passport on ePortfolio. Please complete and upload it no earlier than 30 days before the ARCP date and no later than the evidence deadline.
