SuppoRTT - West Midlands

At Health Education England, we have been presented with an opportunity to ensure that consistent and appropriate time, resources, and support are invested in our returning trainees in order for them to step back into training after taking time out without unnecessary difficulties.

For trainees to stay up to date with training whilst away from practice and to identify support required upon their return, it is no encouraged to complete an individualised Supported Return to Training plan (SuppoRTT) and participate in structured planning and review meetings when leaving and returning with their Training Programme Director, Educational Supervisor or College Tutor.

Through the process trainees will be able to access:

  • Return to Clinical Practice days.
  • Enhanced Supervisions 
  • Access to pre-existing local training and bespoke training
  • Reimbursement of childcare costs for KIT/SPLIT days
  • Building your personal and professional well-being
  • Clinical Simulation days


You can find more information about the Supported Return to Training on this page. Including guidance documents, forms to complete, events and training available, and FAQs.
