Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT)

Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) is a centrally funded Health Education England (HEE) programme which aims to support ALL trainees to safely and confidently return to training after a sustained period of absence.

The programme applies to ALL trainees who are absent for a period of three months or more, regardless of the reason. Those who are absent for a shorter period may also access support.   

As returning trainees are a diverse group, SuppoRTT aims to provide a bespoke, individualised package for each retuning trainee, rather than a single ‘one size fits all’ approach. The SuppoRTT programme consists of;

  • A structured and systematic process for planning absence, maintaining contact whilst out and planning for your return
  • A menu of supported Return To Training Activities (RTT-A) that can be built into an individulised return-to-training package
  • Funding to support CPD activities and a Supernumerary period dependent on the trainees individual needs

We understand that returning to training after a period of absence can impact your clinical skills and confidence, however, you are not on your own! HEE and your School are here to support and guide you through this process. You just need to ask.
