NHS Streamlining Week - Day 4 doctors in training programme 

Streamlining week

On the fourth day of NHS Streamlining Week, we focused on the national doctors in training programme led by NHS Improvement and Health Education England (HEE). The programme aims to support employers to address six principles, which when implemented, have been widely recognised as helping to improve the pre-employment experience of doctors in training.


The case for change


The programme is the first and only system-wide initiative to address national barriers to improve the onboarding and induction experience of doctors in training. NHS Improvement and Health Education England jointly lead this work and are working with other national partners to drive forward a programme to improve the induction and rotation process for all doctors in training.

The programme will support trusts to enable doctors in training to rotate more efficiently and effectively between NHS organisations, with onboarding and induction information only being repeated on rotation when necessary.

The case for change for improving the experience of doctors in training, increasing the quality of HR services and delivering more efficient practices are significant. There are hours and financial savings to be saved, and a real opportunity to improve staff experience.
