If a doctor in training disagrees with the ARCP decision a review can be requested for ARCP outcomes 2, 7.2 and 10.1. In addition, the review process would, in most cases, be the first step in the appeal process for ARCP outcomes 3, 4 and 10.2.
A review is a process where the panel who originally made a decision return to it to reconsider whether it was appropriate.
The completed “Doctor in training’s grounds for appeal review or appeal”(Word Doc) form should be accompanied by any evidence the doctor in training wishes to present to the review panel relevant to the original panel’s decision.
The original panel will usually review its decision within 15 working days of receipt of the request and the panel will focus solely on responding to the grounds raised.
The doctor in training will not be present for the review.
The decision of the review of an outcome 2 is final and there is no further appeal process.
