After Offers

Allocation to programme

If your region has not initially offered to the level of specific hospitals/rotations, after the upgrading deadline, they will begin this process. 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.

Programmes will normally start on the first Wednesday in August for Scotland posts and September for England and Wales; this also applies to posts offered in clearing
