After Offers

Allocation to programme

After the upgrading deadline, regions will begin the process of allocating applicants to specific programmes. This will be done through local processes that will vary between regions.

Your programme will be within the specific region or sector to which you have been offered but the trust allocated and specialties in your rotations will be decided via this local process.


Following acceptance of a post offer, prospective employers will run criminal records and other checks.

Providing these pre-employment checks are all satisfied, employers will then issue contracts of employment, as well as confirming salary details, pay banding, rotas, induction arrangements, etc.

Part of this process will be to contact referees to obtain clinical references. Referees will be contacted directly, you do not need to supply references yourself at any stage.

All programmes will start on the first Wednesday in August and this also applies to posts offered in clearing
