PCS Year End: 30th April 2023 - Upload Credits

As we now approach the end of the Professional Competence Scheme year 2022 – 2023, we recommend that you update your ePortfolio to ensure that your CPD activity is uploaded for the current year 1st May 2022 – 30th April 2023.   LOGIN to upload your CPD activity


You will be aware from previous circulations that the PCS requirements  for PCS Year 1st May 2022 – 30th April 2023 are as follows.

  • All enrolled doctors are required to engage in and record a minimum of 25 CPD credits across ANY credit categories (external, internal, personal, research/teaching). CPD targets for each category will not apply for 2022/23.


  • Complete one clinical / practice audit

Doctors will need to confirm that they have met / not met these requirements when completing their annual Medical Council retention of registration in May/June 2023.


We wish to highlight that the PCS portal has not been updated / changed to reflect the above PCS interim requirements and therefore when you record the minimum requirement (25 cpd credits) and one clinical / practice Audit for this current 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 interim requirements for this PCS year.
