Form R Part A

Upon registering for a specialty training programme within Health Education England working across Yorkshire and the Humber (HEEYH), trainees are required to complete Form R Part A (Registration Form). Without this form, HEE YH cannot register trainees on the Postgraduate Dean’s Database or retain the National Training Number (NTN issued to run-through trainees only). Doctors appointed to Core programmes will be issued with a Reference Number (DRN) and HEE YH will retain a record of trainees and their achievement of competencies.

All new trainees will receive an email with their NTN/DRN and the GMC approval code to aid the process of registering with their respective Colleges.  Once HEE YH has received a trainee’s Form R Part A, details will be forwarded to the relevant College to complete the registration process. Due to the large volume of Form R's received, HEE YH will not acknowledge receipt of the Form R, nor will they send trainees a copy of the Form R with the Postgraduate Dean’s signature.

To Register

Please download Form R Part A and, if you are registering for a programme for the first time, the relevant 'Conditions of Joining' document below

  • Core Training Programme
  • Specialty Training Programme

Return both documents completed and signed, together with a passport sized colour photograph (signed and dated on the back) and the Programme Support team will then send you confirmation of your NTN and the GMC approval code.

Form R Part B

Each trainee also has the responsibility of completing the Form R Part B for Revalidation purposes on an annual basis.  Revalidation is the process by which licensed doctors are required to demonstrate on a regular basis that they are up to date and fit to practise.  Please see the Revalidation section of the website for more information. 

Trainees will be asked to complete the Form R Part B ahead of the Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) and guidance is available to support completion.
