New Guidance from Medical Council on Leave from Clinical Practice

When the Professional Competence Scheme commenced, there was no formal allowance for periods of leave from clinical practice.  The Medical Council have now asked all Training Bodies to reflect leave from clinical practice, of greater than three months, in the Annual Statement of Participation. 

Registered Medical Practitioners are therefore asked to inform their Training Body (RCSI) of leave taken during the PCS year.  The Medical Council have asked that practitioners declare this leave in a prospective manner (if possible) stating the reason for the leave.  This may be done by writing or emailing the RCSI Professional Competence Scheme Office and giving the outline of the reason for leave e.g.  maternity, sick, compassionate, sabbatical or overseas leave and the duration, if known.  We are not required to collect precise details for the leave but the Medical Council may ask for this, if you are audited by them.
