ARCP - Annual Review of Competence Progrssion

F1 doctors are only provisionally registered with the GMC. By the end of the year, trainees must have demonstrated the required competences before they are granted full registration.

The NETFS has a zero tolerance policy in regards to ARCP: Foundation Doctors who have not completed the necessary assessments satisfactorily will not be signed off and will be unable to progress.

Full details on the process can be found on the UKFPO website. including a summary of the process and the full guidance document.
