Supported Return to Training

Supporting doctors returning to training after time out

We are offering support to help those who have taken time out of training to return safely and confidently.

We are committed to developing a supportive, high quality learning environment for all doctors in training, regardless of their personal circumstances.  

 

SuppoRTT survey

Health Education England (HEE) is conducting an evaluation of the Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) programme. This survey seeks to assess the perceptions and impacts of the SuppoRTT programme. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

Survey for doctors in training who have accessed the SuppoRTT Programme - open from Thursday 5th September to Monday 30th September

Survey for doctors in training who have not accessed the SuppoRTT Programme - open from Thursday 12th September to Monday 10th October

Strategy and investment plan

As part of the Acas Junior Doctors’ Contract Agreement, we committed to develop evidence-based, innovative approaches for supporting postgraduate medical trainees who return to training after time out of programme. Our Supported Return to Training strategy and investment plan, available at the bottom of this page, outlined 10 commitments to support trainees with their return to training.
