College Support for Posts and Programmes

Although the College is no longer required to review all new location/post requests, we may at times need to review whether a location is appropriate and able to meet the needs of the curricula. Where an application for a new programme is required, support from the College will need to be sought.

You can request support for either a new post or programme by completing our online form. Please complete the form as fully as possible.

We will endeavour to review your request within 20 working days of receipt. Please ensure that requests for support for new post or programme applications are sent in advance to allow for processing time. Further information about the process can be viewed on the GMC webpages.

We will shortly be providing guidance on supporting evidence that will need to be sent through to the College.

If you have any queries in the meantime, please contact us at qualityassurance@rcpsych.ac.uk, or on 0208 618 4170.
