***This is a reminder for all past and present e-Portfolio users***

The last batch of anaesthetists in training will move over to the Lifelong Learning platform this August 2019. We advise all anaesthetists in training to download their e-Portfolio onto a few different devices, as the Training e-Portfolio will be decommissioned at the end of August 2019. If you have used the e-portfolio as a previous anaesthetist in training, please also ensure you download an offline version of your e-Portfolio record from the ‘view portfolio’ section. The College will not hold a copy of the e-Portfolio and will be unable to retrieve entries after the above date. You can find a step by step guide on how to download your portfolio via this link <>

Kind regards,

Lifelong Learning team

Queen’s Primary FRCA OSCE Course – 12 Oct 2019 – Essex

The next Queen’s Primary FRCA OSCE course will be held on Saturday 12th October 2019 in the Education Centre, Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, Essex RM7 0AG (Romford is 15 minutes on the fast train from London Liverpool Street). 

This highly-rated one-day course includes two complete OSCE circuits held under exam conditions, hot-topic lectures including anatomy and resuscitation, plus a hot lunch and refreshments. We have a large and enthusiastic faculty comprising both recently successful candidates and experienced consultants (including a previous college examiner). The course enjoys consistently excellent reviews and we pride ourselves on our special emphasis on personal feedback and post-course support. This is the 6th time we will be running the course and we have therefore developed an excellent know-how of what candidates need and want from the course from previous feedback.

The course fee is £150. For further information or to apply, please visit or contact us on We look forward to helping you pass.
