When you start working at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, it’s important we tell you what to expect, what we expect and inform you of all relevant information relating to your professional development.

At Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust you start with a face to face induction, where you will receive a personal welcome from one of our Senior Leaders and will be told about the everyday essentials of working in the Trust.

Our next Junior Doctor Trust Induction will be:

Wednesday 2 May 2018 at  LTHT NHS Trust's site: The Leeds General Infirmary Great George Street, LS1 3EX .

Complementing the face to face induction, here at Leeds Teaching Hospitals we also require all new trainees to complete various mandatory training modules. We recommend that you complete the following eLearning packages prior to your start date:

  • Regional Clinical e-Induction

Clinical e-Induction: This is intended to equip trainees with all the clinical mandatory training appropriate to their role and familiarise them with important policies and procedures relating to clinical practice. It is a requirement of both the Trust and Health Education Yorkshire & Humber (HEYH) that all trainees undertake clinical e-induction. This is a two year passport and all new starters at LTHT are supplied with a link to the web page.

The induction package can be accessed from any internet enabled computer, tablet or mobile device. It normally takes 4 hours to complete.

For instructions on using the platform view the Getting Started Guide.

Junior Doctor Contract Implementation

As you may be aware, following national negotiations, the new contract of employment for junior doctors is being implemented from this Autumn. The initial implementation phase at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust starts on 7th December 2016 – seeing all Foundation Year 1 (FY1) doctors and Foundation Year 2 (FY2) doctors who support a FY1 rota transferring to the new contract and associated terms and conditions.

We have recently appointed two Guardians of Safe Working Hours, Dr Ros Roden and Dr Mark Wright whose job it is to ensure that our rotas are compliant with the new contract, especially around ensuring safe working hours and maintaining access to education and training for trainees.

Supporting the work of the Guardians of Safe Working Hours and accompanying the implementation of the new contract, a new process of exception reporting will also be introduced on 7th December via the Doctors Rostering System (DRS) – the electronic system for exception reporting.  Further information and guidance on the new processes for junior doctors, educational and clinical supervisors at Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust can be found below:
