I have been allocated a post for transfer but have an ARCP before I leave my current training region in which I may receive an unsatisfactory outcome – can my transfer still go ahead?

We have changed the terms and conditions (you sign these on the application portal) to say that as long as Postgraduate Deans from both regions agree, the transfer can go ahead. 

Trainees can move between any of the four nations on an ARCP Outcome 1, 2, 3, 10.1 or 10.2.  A letter of support from your Postgraduate Dean in the case of Outcome 2, or 3, is no longer a requirement.  

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. 


We realise that by the time you receive your final ARCP you will have handed in notice and done pre-employment checks for your new region, so cancelling your transfer may be detrimental to all concerned. If there is a serious concern or problem with your ARCP outcome, such that one of the deans feels the transfer is inappropriate, your transfer may still be cancelled.
