Dear Doctors in Training
You may be aware through your Deanery Bulletins which is sent directly to trainees (see attached) that Health Education England are changing the way that trainees apply for study leave. This change comes into effect from 1st April 2018.
Please see updated guidance which has been ratified by the Trusts Revalidation Team
We have had some enquires with regards to revalidation and appraisal from trainees who have taken “time out of training” and whom are currently working for our trust.
This is confidential and free 1:1 career guidance and support for London and South East trainee doctors or dentists.
Are you approaching a critical career decision and would like the opportunity to explore your ideas with a career expert? We the HEE’s Careers Unit for London and South East may be able to help you.
Please find here the Focus Group Trainee Invite containing information about an upcoming GMC trainee focus group.
Please could you promote this amongst your trainees, if you have any queries regarding the research please contact Vicki Ashworth – firstname.lastname@example.org
