There are opportunities for trainees to apply for specialty training posts across the whole region for September 2024 and March 2025.
Note: To ensure equality of access to specialist training opportunities, and fair distribution of trainees in each locally, trainees may be asked to work in a general paediatric post in a neighbouring area. For example, a West trainee may be asked to complete a post in Harrogate or Barnsley or a South trainee to complete a post in Scunthorpe or Wakefield. If because of your personal circumstances you are unable to do this please let your local Training Programme Director know with evidence for your reasons.
