The National Inter Deanery Transfer (IDT) process has been established to support trainees who have had an unforeseen and significant change in their personal circumstances since the commencement of their current training programme which requires a move to a different region. The process is managed by the National IDT team, based in London, on behalf of the Conference of Postgraduate Medical Deans (COPMeD), NHS England and all UK regions.
In order to provide a consistent, transparent and robust process for all trainees, the National IDT team will make all decisions on eligibility and allocations in accordance with the published guidelines and criteria.
Please see the National IDT Team website for all information regarding the IDT process https://medical.hee.nhs.uk/medical-training-recruitment/medical-specialty-training/inter-deanery-transfers-idt including timelines and supporting documents.
In addition, the IDT national team send out newsletters informing trainees when the window is open/closed/waiting list, availability of supporting documentation and any major changes implemented. Anyone who subscribes to the newsletter will receive these messages.
The newsletter subscribing link is available within the website. Newsletter link as below:
For any local queries about the process please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for the East Midlands.
If you are a GP that is applying to change programme within the East Midlands region, please note this does not fall under the IDT process. We have a local process that can be found here.
Similarly, for Secondary Care trainees that are applying to change rotation within the East Midlands region, this also does not fall under the IDT process. These are handled within your School so please contact your Training Programme Director.
