Time Out of Training
Trainees who have been absent for a total of more than 14 days
within each 12 month period will require their CCT or CESR CP date
to be reviewed.
A decision on whether an extension to the CCT or CESR CP date
needs to occur is decided in consultation between the deanery and
It is unlikely that they will do this on every absence occasion
although as this is undertaken at the ARCP it is likely that there
will be input from college individuals (i.e. TPDs). Each trainee
will be considered on an individual basis, and any changes will
reflect the trainee’s competence.
For full details on these arrangements, which were introduced on
1 April 2013, see the
GMC’s position statement (pdf).
Please ensure you contact the Royal College of Psychiatrists if
there are any extensions to your training which will necessitate
revision of your CCT or CESR CP date.
