An ARCP Outcome Form can be completed by anyone involved in the ARCP review process at any time once an ARCP has been scheduled up until such time as the form is submitted and signed off. Deanery administrators may review outcome forms prior to a review date to save time on the day of an ARCP and save them as a draft.
Step 1: Log in to your account on FOM PortfolioBuilder.
Step 2: Go to the page for your region or school (NHS Education for Scotland, NSOH, Defence Deanery or NIMDTA).
Step 3: Click on the 'ARCP/Reviews' tab.
Step 4: Click on the link to the ARCP Outcome Form for the trainee undergoing review.
If an outcome form has been previously drafted (by an administrator for example), the link to the form will read 'ARCP Outcome'. If not, the link will read '+New Outcome Form'.
PROTIP: The filters on the left of the screen can be used to show ARCPs with a particular status or outcome and the search bar can be used to search for a particular trainee.
Step 5: Enter the details into the ARCP Outcome Form.
Outcome forms are automatically pre-populated with information found on the trainee's account on FOM PortfolioBuilder and have any required fields highlighted.
Step 6: Click on 'Submit' or 'Save Changes'
When submitting a form, the system will alert you if any required fields are missing. Fields which automatically update a trainee's portfolio have a clipboard icon. This is so that personal details & important numbers are syncronised throughout FOM PortfolioBuilder.
Saving changes to an ARCP Outcome Form will leave the form in draft format. The form must be submitted by a deanery administrator or an ARCP panel member to proceed.
Once an ARCP Outcome Form has been submitted, it needs to be signed off. Only the chair of the ARCP panel or the postgraduate dean can sign off an ARCP Outcome Form.
