Any NHS organisation can apply to host a trainee as a Lead Organisation. A lead organisation is the primary organisation / system which on behalf of themselves and the partner organisation(s) is responsible for sourcing the second placement and to ensure all placements provide the best opportunities for the trainee. The lead host organisation generally will be the first placement, however this is not mandatory. It is also possible, and actively encouraged, for lead organisations to work across the system to provide experiences in other areas, for example Primary Care. The trainee should gain experience in both an operational setting as well as strategic, and this is usually reflected in the individual placements offered.
You will need to complete an online statement of commitment, this will be opened in the new year.
Please note the lead host organisation or host system is responsible for sourcing the second placement and is required to complete the form for both their own placement as well for the second with their partner organisation. Further information on the statement of commitment and the assurance process is available in the below downloadable files.
Please note: Bids for September 2021 cohort will be open in the new year.
The financial aspects
The total contribution from the organisation / system hosting a trainee is £24,000 for each trainee’s two-year training period.
