1. Keep it local
- For the foundation programme, you should contact your foundation school to find out as much as you can for your case. Contact details should be available on correspondence you have received from the school, or online.
- For specialty trainees, you should contact the recruiting office. It may be that the recruiting office is not local to you, but you should not be put off by that.
2. Raise it with HEE
If you are not happy with the response from your foundation school or recruiting office, speak to your HEE local office for the purpose of engaging with the deanery function and find out more information. Ideally, if you are at this stage then the HEE local office should be able to escalate the issue.
3. Contact the BMA
If you are not able to get the answer you want, then raise this issue with a BMA employment adviser who will be able to take further steps to advance your issue.
4. Don’t delay
If you are kept waiting during the process at any stage, then do not delay in contacting those running the process – it will benefit you to ensure that the process is being run to time and that you are being contacted regularly. It is important for you to be fully informed, so that you can be prepared for your new post.
