The aim of the SuppoRTT programme is for you to create a bespoke plan of what support/training you may need when you return to training. The process is Trainee led maning you will need to contact your supervisor to arrange meetings to discuss your return forms. If you are going on planned leave, you will ideally start from Form 1 and see the process through, although this may not always be the case and your leave may be unplanned, you would start the process at Form 2. 

In addition to your SuppoRTT plan at Health Education England - WM, we are aiming for a Knowledge, Behavioural and Skill approach for returning Trainees and will be focusing the training we are providing around these areas. There are links available on the right hand side to online resources such as E-Learning for Health and information that may link in with SuppoRTT such as the HEE Study Leave policy and the WM Professional Support Unit.

On the home page you will find links to download all the relevant documents associated with SuppoRTT such as our Local WM guidance, all 4 Forms and Top Tips for returners.
