All communications of this type should be directed to the National IDT team and trainees are strongly advised not to contact colleagues in prospective regions to find out about vacancies. Contacting prospective colleagues can unfortunately create misunderstanding or raised expectations regarding vacancies, which is something we’re very keen to avoid. If you are eligible, your listed training regions will look for a vacancy for you but they will not be aware of your allocation ranking or your name.

Therefore, having a single point of contact for trainees on matters such as these will ensure that a consistent level of information is received.
