Code of Practice
Provision of Information for
Postgraduate Medical Training
Doctors in training have the same needs as other NHS
employees. They want to know as much detail as possible about
the programmes and posts they are applying for, where they will be
working and their conditions of employment. This Code of
Practice seeks to help recruiting organisations and employers get
the flow of information right to help meet those needs as far as it
is reasonably practicable to do so.
This Code of Practice aims to support a process of continuing
improvement to ensure that any concerns in relation to information
are addressed. It lays out the agreed set of information that
recruiting organisations and employers should provide to doctors in
training at each stage of the recruitment process.
This Code of Practice applies to Postgraduate medical
recruitment in England and Wales only. For details on the Code
of Practice in Northern Ireland and Scotland, please check
