Due to the current unprecedented circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), face to face recruitment has been cancelled.  We have submitted proposals for a modified selection process to the Medical & Dental Recruitment & Selection (MDRS) team and it has now been agreed that a self-assessment process will be the sole ranking method for appointment.  Shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a self-assessment form together with supporting evidence. A copy of this form for each of the specialties can be downloaded below
