Retrospective granting of CCT to CESR(CP) holders

The GMC has confirmed they will grant CCTs retrospectively to doctors who were issued with a CESR through the combined programme prior to 1 January 2021, and who completed the minimum amount of time training in the UK for their specialty, or who trained in a specialty for which there was no minimum training time.

To be retrospectively granted with a CCT you will need to make a direct request to the GMC.

The GMC guidance for Deaneries and Colleges on Combined Programme applications outlines additional steps required of Deaneries and Colleges on appointment of trainees to a combined programme, and the policy and process for retrospective granting of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) to eligible doctors previously granted a Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) through the Combined Programme.

For further information on the CESR & CESR (CP) application please refer to GMC website.
