Recruitment 2020

Statement regarding deferral of training programme due to COVID-19

Deferring the commencement date for specialty training programmes is generally only permitted for statutory reasons (e.g. maternity leave, sick leave, paternity leave). With the Covid-19 pandemic, there are likely to be a number of successful applicants who are unable to commence training on the advertised start date, for a number of non-statutory reasons as a result of COVID-19.

For all non-statutory, COVID-19 related deferrals, trainees allocated a Specialty Training placement in Wales from August 2020 will be required to request this by contacting the HEIW Recruitment team HEIW.Recruitment@wales.nhs.uk where each case will be reviewed.
