HEE Quality Midlands has created an online tool for learners and educators to identify and share good practice across the whole Midlands. By sharing your examples of excellence, it is hoped that a repository of good practice will be created that can be shared across the HEE network.

The East Midlands Trainee Engagement Forum is looking into the study leave process within the East Midlands. We have created a survey to assess the current process and obtain feedback from trainees on the process.
The survey is designed to understand trainee experience in the different stages of the study leave process, for example section 2 covers study leave application process while section 3 covers reimbursement from local trusts.
HEE's supported return to training (SuppoRTT) team is providing a number of FREE courses to upskill or refresh educators in supporting doctors in training integrate back in to clinical practice after an absence from work during 2022/23
1. SuppoRTT: Upskilling the Educators
A new virtual reality resource has been developed by the SuppoRTT team in Health Education England for doctors returning to training. Using a clinical scenario, the topic of Escalating Concerns and Speaking Up is explored, skills that are increasingly recognised as contributing to the quality and safety of care for patients.
Although developed for doctors returning to training, trainers of training doctors and other healthcare professionals returning to training may find the resource useful.
