The application form will ask you to indicate whether you wish to be considered for CT1 Anaesthesia and / or ACCS (Anaesthesia). The ANRO will request more details on preference of programmes at a later date.

Interviews will be held on the 13th January 2017.  Once a post is accepted (or held) there can be automatic upgrade to a higher preferenced post within Anaesthesia / ACCS Anaesthesia should this become available.

Please note: Advice from Intercollegiate Committee ACCS Training

Recruitment to ACCS will be by separate streams, dependent on intended parent specialty. The first two years of ACCS share a common curriculum, and any competences acquired are transferable. However, it is not possible to switch between specialty career paths without a further competitive selection process. Applicants are therefore advised to select their initial specialty of choice with care.

Do please keep checking the School website and Health Education England South West website for further information and contact details regarding the recruitment process.

For further information please contact Beccie Williams-Lock, Recruitment Manager for ACCS.
