Getting Started With ACCS CT1

ACCS CT1 anaesthetic trainees are under the Acute Specialty Schools and not NSAICM.

Please check out the  ACCS School website http://madeinheene.hee.nhs.uk/acute-care-common-stem/

It is advisable that trainees register with the Royal College of Anaesthetists  before the start of their anaesthetic year.  If trainees register at the start of CT1 ACCS they are unable to use e-portfolio for one year despite paying for it.
