Are you a health worker returning to practice or can you do extra shifts?

If so, please email or click here.

In this rapidly moving and challenging time, HEE YH have created this specific webpage resource with the aim to help keep our doctors and dentists in training up to date and informed. We also hope this resource will be helpful for our PGMDE faculty and partner NHS trusts and wider stakeholders. 

We will be continually updating this website as further information, documentation and announcements occur. 

This local HEE YH resource should be read in conjunction with HEE’s national dedicated website:
