SuppoRTT for Out of Programme (OOP) Trainees

HEE East Midlands has begun a programme of support in line with HEE national objectives to help trainees who have been out of programme (OOP). There are two initiatives currently:

1) SuppoRTT Coaching for OOP Trainees

The SuppoRTT team now offers coaching with our external coaching providers. We are therefore now able to offer this to trainees who are out of programme in addition to those who are referred through our usual channels. This is a valuable opportunity to support your return to work, or to help you think through your options.We currently have capacity to take ten trainees at a time, and we will operate a waiting list if we have more applicants at any one time than that.  Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You must be an East Midlands Trainee doctor who is currently out of programme (OOP) to participate.  A coaching application form is listed in the documents below.  Please forward it to  

2) Productivity Retreat for OOP Trainees - NEXT course 19th NOVEMBER, 2019 at the HILTON LEICESTER 9:45a.m. - 4.30p.m.

A full day of protected productivity designed especially for people who want to get things done but find that life or work gets in the way of progress.

Are you:

  • -An East Midlands Trainee currently out of programme (OOP), preferably OOPR or OOPT

  • -Someone who struggles with procrastination?

  • -Need to complete research or a qualification as part of your role but find you can't find the time?
