This will depend upon your current status and level of training; trainees with different experience will be required to give different evidence.
The application form will guide you on this, but please also visit the foundation competences page of this website for more information.
Please note - if you are not currently on, or have not previously completed, a UK/UK-affiliated foundation programme, you will likely be required to submit a completed 'Alternative Certificate' as evidence of your foundation competence.
The UK Resuscitation Council (RC[UK] website) is keen to ensure strict quality control and standardisation of experience/skills gained in resuscitation training. As such, there are strict guidelines applied on which courses/certificates can be classed as equivalent to the RC(UK) certificate.
RC(UK) course certificates are recognised across Europe and are valid for four years (ILS/PILS are valid for one year).
The holder of any RC(UK) course certificate has achieved a standard defined by the RC(UK); the tight quality control applied to the course programmes, the teaching scenarios, the instructors and the assessment provides some assurance of this standard.
Since RC(UK) have no such information on, or control over, the standards of potential 'equivalent' courses, RC(UK) clearly cannot offer any similar guarantee concerning successful participants.
However; ALS certificates provided by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) (ERC website) or Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) (ARC website) are recognised by RC(UK), as these organisations use the same programme, teaching material and assessment process.
So in summary: ALS courses/certificates from only the UK , European and Australian Resuscitation Councils can be accepted as meeting the requirement for advanced life support training.
Restrictions apply to candidates whose employment will be subject to the resident labour market test (RLMT).
In the first round of CT1 recruitment, the RLMT will not be considered to be satisfied, and therefore candidates in this position will not be considered in round 1.
If this applies to you, then you may wish to consider applying in round 2 of CT1 recruitment.
More information on this is available on the NHS specialty training website.
UK and EEA nationals, doctors whose immigration status entitles them to work as a doctor in training in the UK without restriction, and doctors who are graduates of a UK medical school (regardless of their nationality) and who are moving from a student visa to a working visa, are eligible to apply in either round.
Unfortunately, we are not able to give advice or specific guidance to candidates with regard to individual queries on immigration/visa status. Immigration issues are particularly complex, so it is important that you discuss this with appropriately qualified people.
We are afraid that this applies both to the information contained within this website and our email helpdesk.
Regions assess candidate eligibility so should also be able to help advise on immigration issues. Contact details can be found on the region contacts page.
You can; however your application will need to be supported by a document giving details on this departure. The form can be downloaded from the Oriel resource bank.
The person specification states:Applications will only be considered if applicants provide a Support for Reapplication to a Specialty Training Programme form, signed by both the Training Programme Director/Head of School and the Postgraduate Dean in the LETB/Deanery that the training took place. Extraordinary circumstances may be defined as a demonstrated change in circumstances, which can be shown on the ability to train at that time and may include severe personal illness or family caring responsibility incompatible with continuing to train. Completed forms must be submitted at the time of application. No other evidence will be accepted.
In short, no.
Speaking generally, you would only be considered to have relinquished a programme in regards to this question if you had physically begun the programme, before leaving at a later stage.
If you applied to CT1 in a previous round, and then withdrew your application, this would not be classed as relinquishing; even if you withdrew after accepting an offer. If your withdrawal came before you started, this would just be regarded as a withdrawal of your application, rather than relinquishing a place on a CT1 programme.
