Work with us

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.
