How to complete Form R, Reflection on Work outside of Training form, recording industrial action

ARCP information on HEW website

Any trainee thinking of undertaking regular locum shifts should first discuss this with their Educational Supervisor to check it is acceptable within a GP training scheme.  Trainees must declare and list all locum shifts (dates times where) on their Form R where relevant annually before every ARCP. 

They also must complete a Reflection of Work Outside training form – Instructions on how to complete Form R on TIS Self Service (TSS) and the Reflection on Work Outside of training form (Word template) are available from the HEW ARCP website, link above.  Trainees then need to attach completed signed Work Outside of Training form onto a 'Supporting Documentation type' log entry on Portfolio - clearly titled "Reflection on locum work".  This needs to be in place at the time of every ARCP.

Recording Industrial Action

Record each day as a single day on the Portfolio and on Form R.  Choose "Other" on Portfolio pick list and expand.  Now a separate section on Form R.
