In line with HEE’s recommendation to provide additional shadowing days, to help you familiarise with your department and role, we are offering a fully paid 10 day Induction programme this year.

Our programme allows the Trust to give assurance, and ensure compliance, with its statutory and regulatory obligations.  Plus, it meets the requirements set by HENW and the GMC regarding promoting excellence in standards for medical education and training.

The induction is designed to:
  • Smooth the transition from University to Hospital
  • Provide on-ward experience of your first placement
  • Complete Clinical Skills training
  • Get to know your role
  • Introduce you to the team hosting and supporting your training over the next 2 years

Whilst we strongly recommend that you attend the full 10 day induction you are not required under the Terms of Employment to attend any of the voluntary period offered.  You will be asked to choose between starting induction on Wednesday 21st July or Tuesday 27th July.
