Targeted Enhanced Recruitment Scheme: Health Education England - East Midlands. Allocation to rotations process.

This scheme offers a one off payment (salary support[1]) of £20,000 to GP trainees committed to working in a select number of training places within the East Midlands , that have been hard to recruit to for the past three years. These areas  have an extremely good track record for education, but are initially less popular mainly because of their geographical location. However, those trainees that do come to these areas often stay on after training, as they discover these locations’ hidden attractions, including beautiful countryside and cheap housing

For East Midlands the areas offering this are in Sherwood Forest, Chesterfield & Lincolnshire (Boston). Whereas previously each trainee allocated to a TERS area received the £20,000, from 2017 these are only offered to part of the programme & rotations on offer. In Lincolnshire (Boston)  only 8 rotations will have a TERS attached, in Sherwood Forest 5 rotations will attract a TERS and in Chesterfield, 8 rotations will attract a TERS.

For Lincolnshire all TERS rotations for Lincoln filled, there are still places with a TERS attached to some rotations in Boston. There are also non TERS rotations available throughout Lincolnshire (Boston & Lincoln).

Allocations will work as follows;

Round 2 offers to Training Programmes (Lincolnshire ) will be made via Oriel by GPNRO where you will have 48 hours to accept, decline or hold. Clearly this means at the point of accepting a placement, unless you had achieved the bypass score and been exempted from Selection Centre, you will not be aware whether you are going to receive the salary support of TERS.

Once all offers have been accepted & the upgrade deadline of 13th October has passed, you will then be asked to rank the available rotations. Applicants will be ranked in the same ways as initial offers are made i.e. based on their performance throughout the selection process. Applicants who qualified for the Direct Pathway to Offers will be ranked first, above those who were deemed appointable via the Selection Centre. Allocations will then be made in rank order based on national ranking.

Rotations which attract a TERS payment will be fixed and there will be no flexibility to either change the order of posts or the actual speciality of posts. Please see the downloads section for available rotations.
