The supported return to training (suppoRTT) programme was established to provide additional support to trainees who have taken time out of training in 2016/17. Returning to training after a period of time off for trainees presents unique challenges. Trainees are a diverse group  and many describe anxiety, well being issues and skills fade on their return. 

It is important trainees are supported to return safely and the culture amongst the NHS continues to support and promote this. National evaluation of this project by RSM is now in year 2, however the granular detail for the Yorkshire and Humber programme will be limited. COVID 19 has been an additional factor affecting trainees return experience the details of which remain to be fully understood. Further broadening of the programme will be required to meet the needs of trainees based on the findings of the regional evaluation.
