My ARCP 2 or 3 are not due to clinical or competence issues, can I still apply?

Modified on Thu, 20 Jul 2023 at 10:35 AM

A recent review within NHS England means that if you wish to transfer from one region to another, you can still apply with an Outcome 2 or 3, given for any reason.

If you have not yet received an ARCP outcome in your current training region, you are not required to provide any document in relation to your ARCP at time of application. Your current training region as part of the shared eligibility details during the vacancy declaration process will review and flag any causes for concern that require local discussion. 


As part of the on-going national review of the IDT process, it has been agreed that trainees are able to transfer between Health Education England, Scotland N.I or Wales and vice versa on an ARCP outcome 1, 2, 3, 10.1 or 10.2.
