CCTing… What you need to know and do.

You should get an email from the GMC approx. 3-6 months before you are due to CCT inviting you to make sure all your details are up to date, including your email address. Check it!

Once your final ARCP is completed and you get an Outcome 6, you will be contacted by RCGP/or via eportfolio to click ‘apply for CCT’ and you will be guided through the process. Remember you need to pay your fee to the GMC to be added to the GP register (£399, currently being reviewed)

Performers list

Make sure you are on the performers list and clarify your region’s requirements to update the record from ‘registrar’ to ‘GP salaried/partner/locum etc’. If you are moving areas, there are notification forms on the website.


Make sure you update your indemnity provider with your changing work details (with dates) and continue to do so.

Pensions and Financial Advice

Consider your finances, and what and how you are earning will likely change on CCTing. Ask around for accountants and financial advisors that colleagues use, and consider income protection.
