Our teams, working across the East Midlands

We have a dedicated workforce delivering high quality services across a variety of teams.

Assessments and Revalidation

We help deliver HEE’s mandate by supporting the education of doctors/dentists in training from foundation to Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT). We organise all Annual Reviews of Competence Progression (ARCP) and advise panel members, ensuring educational progress of doctors is fairly assessed, at least annually, in line with regulatory and General Medical Council (GMC) and General Dental Council (GDC) requirements. We provide data to the GMC annually and produce reports to regulators and HEE as required. If a doctor disagrees with their ARCP outcome, we facilitate their request for appeal. We also guide doctors in training through revalidation, gathering information to support the responsible officer in recommending doctors as fit to practise. To support this, we run specialist training to guide educators in their role and work with HEE colleagues to develop and improve regional and national processes.

Assessments and Revalidation

Careers

We offer a variety of initiatives to support career development and decision making, primarily aimed at doctors. These include workshops, one-to-one support, virtual learning careers modules and web-based resources. We also support faculties in the delivery of careers support activity, for example at faculty and educational events and via collaborative work at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The team is also part of the national HEE Health Careers Team, which has worked together to integrate three previous websites (NHS Careers, Medical Careers and PHORCaST for Public Health careers) into a brand new national Health Careers website: www.healthcareers.nhs.uk.
