Distribution of medical training posts

The College is aware of current uncertainty regarding the Distribution of Speciality Posts and would like to provide reassurance to all trainees that proposed changes will be phased and will not affect any higher specialty trainees currently in training. 

We appreciate that Core Trainees may already be thinking about their higher specialty training and we recognise that the limited information that is available is leading to concerns. National Strategies are ongoing to ensure training posts are created in areas where they are needed, rather than being taken away/moved from other areas and as soon as we have more information, we will share this.

Further information can be found under the FAQs section on the HEE website.

Please note that The College continues to advocate for well-informed workforce planning as well as flexibility in training to support recruitment and retention. We will endeavour to share further information and provide updates as soon as they have been confirmed by HEE.
