SuppoRTT - West Midlands

Supported Return to Training - West Midlands 

A guide for Dotors who have taken time out:

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, we now have a process in place where trainees are encouraged to complete an individualised Supported Return to Training plan (SuppoRTT).

This will involve participating in structured planning and review meetings when leaving and returning with their ES, CS, Training Programme Director, or College Tutor.

The SuppoRTT Process is Trainee led so initially Trainees will need to make contact to arrange a meeting with their Supervisors to discuss Forms 1-4

Through this process trainees will be able to access bespoke courses, events and training that will include the following:

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

For information on how to take part in this process please see the SuppoRTT process link on the right hand column.
