HDR Programme for September 2021 – August 2022

We have the following mandatory training events/days for 2021/22:

  • Joint Trainee Conference – 12th July 2022

Please note – as these dates apply to ALL GP Trainees, study leave forms are unnecessary.

Alongside these days we have our Half-Day Release sessions. Trainees are allocated 30 days of study leave per year, 20 (40 ½ days) of these are allocated to HDR sessions (pro-rata for LTFT trainees). Unless a Trainee is on-call, nights, post nights, post weekends etc or on annual leave then they would be expected to attend. As a Scheme we would aim for at least 80% attendance at HDR sessions

HDR Sessions are held every Tuesday afternoon from 1.30 – 5pm (sessions commence promptly at 2pm) at Oak House, Moorhead Way, Bramley, Rotherham, S66 1YY.
