PCS Year End: 30th April 2023 – You can still Upload Credits

Please note you can still upload valid credits for the PCS term 1st May 2022 – 30th April 2023.  We would ask that you update and record your activities on or before Wednesday 31st May 2023. 


Please note that the requirements for the PCS year 1st May 2022 – 30th April 2023 is that you are required to reach a total of 25 CPD credits and complete one Clinical/Practice Audit.  The 25 CPD credits can be recorded in any of the Categories (External/Internal/Personal Learning / Research or Teaching). 


You should now login to your PCS profile and review your credits.  

 If you have not:

  • Identified and recorded additional credits that bring your total credits to the minimum level required, 25 CPD credits and
  • Completed one Clinical/Practice Audit

then it would be appropriate, when you complete the Annual Retention Form (ARF) with the Medical Council, to tick NO to statement 2 “I have achieved the annual minimum CPD requirements for the Scheme Year 2022 / 23    [YES/NO] “


We wish to highlight that the PCS portal has not been updated / changed to reflect the above interim PCS requirements and therefore when you record the minimum requirement (25 cpd credits) and record one Clinical/Practice Audit for this PCS year, your portfolio will indicate that you are ‘not on target’. However, please note that by recording 25 CPD credits and one Clinical/Practice Audit you are ON TARGET with  requirements for this PCS year.


Please note that the following wording has been added to the Statement of Participation for the 2022 - 2023 PCS year as requested by the Medical Council.


PCS Year 2019 - 2023 amended minimum requirements - Covid 19"
