Doctors and Dentists in Training

If you are joining us under the Terms and Conditions of Service for NHS doctors and dentists in training (England) 2016 (the ‘TCS), you will be contacted by the Medical Staffing team at least eight weeks before your placement is due to start with the following information:

  • Model contract (and/or ‘HR2 variation to contract form’)
  • Generic work schedule.

The Postgraduate Medical Education Centre will be in touch with details of your induction around six weeks before you are due to start.

The Rota Team will be in touch with details on how to access your rota at least six weeks before you are due to start.

For those working under the local Terms and Conditions of Service for Trust Doctors and Dentists at York Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust 2017 (‘Trust TCS’), your model contract and work schedule will be sent to you as soon as possible before you commence.

Informing us about safe working (prior to commencement):

The Trust will not be aware what shifts you have undertaken immediately prior to starting with us. It is therefore essential that you tell us if you feel that you will breach any safety rules (such as the Working Time Regulations) by attending induction or by commencing your new rota at the Trust. 

It is your responsibility to inform us of any concerns before you start so that we have an opportunity to address them.

Any concerns should be addressed to or 01723 342591 at least six weeks before you are due to start. 

Leave requests

Doctors should provide a minimum six weeks’ notice of annual leave. Therefore please contact the rota team before you start if you intend to request leave during the first six weeks of your placement. Requests should be emailed to

Further guidance is available on our intranet site (‘Staff Room’) which you can access upon commencement at the Trust. In the meantime the following document will be helpful:

Additional information relating to the TCS is available on the NHS employers website.  And comprehensive material can be found on the BMA website.

Visiting cancelled

Due to the increasing number of cases of coronavirus across the UK, York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has made the decision to cancel all visiting to all its hospital sites in order to ensure the safety of patients and staff.

There are three exemptions to the ruling which are for one parent of a sick child under 18, for the partner of a woman giving birth and end of life patients at the discretion of the ward sister.

We would ask people to respect this decision and to treat our staff, who will be enforcing the visiting restrictions, with courtesy and respect.  For more information visit our website.

Outpatient appointments

We know that NHS services will come under intense pressure as the coronavirus spreads, and as a Trust we need to redirect staff, free up staff for refresher training and carry out any works as necessary, so we are able to maximise capacity for patients for when the number of infections peak.  We also need to reduce the number of people coming into our hospitals to protect our patients, as well as keeping our staff safe, well and able to come into work.

To do this, with effect from Tuesday 24 March 2020, along with other trusts in the Humber Coast and Vale partnerships, we have made the collective decision to suspend all non-urgent routine outpatient appointments for at least three months.  Urgent and emergency cases and cancer appointments will be carrying on as normal.

These are unprecedented times and we thank you for your understanding.  We know many people waiting for treatment will be disappointed or worried but please not contact the hospital as we will be contacting everyone directly affected in the coming days and weeks.

If you do not receive a letter or a phone call from the hospital, please turn up for your scheduled appointment as normal unless you have symptoms of coronavirus, a cold, flu or norovirus in which case you should contact us to cancel your appointment by clicking here.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days.

Please do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice.

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home.  After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine.

But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they're at home for longer than 14 days. The most up-to-date public guidance is always online at

If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.  Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or you cannot go online.
