NHSE YH SuppoRTT Champions 

SuppoRTT Champions are experienced NHS professionals based in most secondary care Trusts and the Psychiatry Speciality School in Yorkshire and Humber. Their role is to provide leadership within the Trust/School to ensure that the SuppoRTT strategy is fully implemented and results in a high-quality supported return to training for all. 

The SuppoRTT Champion can provide Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) and supervisors with guidance regarding the relevant policies and available resources.

The Postgraduate Doctor's in Training (PGDiT's) first point of contact is their educational supervisor or training programme director throughout the return-to-work process. However, the SuppoRTT Champions are useful contacts to help with any additional SuppoRTT queries directly related to your Trust.
