ARCP Webinar recording

Health Education England ran a national webinar on 16 December 2020 on the subject of Annual Reviews of Competency and Progression, followed by a question and answer session. A recording of the webinar has been uploaded to HEE’s YouTube channel

Frequently asked questions on the subject of ARCPs, including those that were asked at the webinar but were not able to be answered on the night due to time constraints, can be found on the HEE Specialty Training website.

Dr Geoff Smith, the HEE South West Postgraduate Dean, had originally planned to hold a local webinar on the topic of ARCPs in the New Year. Given the comprehensive nature of the national event in December, this will now be on a different topic. Details of the nature of this local webinar will be shared with you shortly, along with instructions on how to join it.
