SuppoRTT – Supported Return to Training for North East


Priority : Essential

At any one time, approximately 10% of doctors in training take a period out of training for a variety of reasons, including parental leave, sickness and going out-of-programme for research or experience. We understand that regardless of the reason, returning back into training can be a difficult and stressful time for a trainee. Health Education England and your School are here to support and guide you through this process.

If you have been absent for a period of 3 months or over, it is strongly recommended that you follow our Supported Return to Training Guidance. It has been designed to be flexible and take into account the differing nature and length of absence, as well as the speciality and stage of your training, to ensure that you can safely return and practice within their training programme.

There is also a regional SuppoRTT programme which includes events and days that can you attend. This includes training and support for:

  • Educational days
  • Clinical simulation days
  • Mentorship and coaching
  • Building your personal and professional well-being
  • Practical advice and sign posting.

Should you require any further guidance then please contact the SuppoRTT team
