Junior Doctors

Hello and welcome to Team NUH. 

You have been directed here via your welcome and offer letters and we hope to help make your journey as smooth as possible. 

These pages have been designed to provide you with the documents, links and contacts to those important and mandatory elements and provide you with a checklist of what you must do before you start, what you need to do on day 1 and what you need to do once you have started.

What you need to do BEFORE YOU START

Pre-Employment Checks

Complete the necessary pre-employment checks which include DBS and Occupational health.  Details of the requirements are in your offer letter, on the ESR applicant portal and the resource team can help to ensure your checks are processed before you start.

We are required to validate your original documents when you commence at NUH and you will receive details of your ID appointment in July 2020.


Pay Services

You also need to ensure you have completed the relevant pay forms to ensure you can be paid on time. These are included on the applicant portal.

Please complete these and email to payservices@nuh.nhs.uk


ID badge

You will need an ID badge relevant to your post at NUH.  Please follow this guide for more information.

And complete this form.

Failure to do this before you start will mean you may not be able to gain access to our clinical areas


Less than Full Time

If you have an agreement to work less than full time during your placement with NUH, please liaise with your rota co-ordinator to  ensure your agreed hours or percentage reflects your rota line. For any less than full time queries please contact LTFTQueries@nuh.nhs.uk


Return to Training

If you are due to return from parental leave or OOP or any time out of practice for more than three months, please email suppoRTT@nuh.nhs.uk so that we can ensure the right support is in place for your return.

What you may wish to do before your first day

Car parking permits

We would like to give you the opportunity to apply for a car parking permit before you start work. This will enable the car parking team to process your application in time for your first day.

Please follow this process to apply for a permit.

You can apply for a permit at QMC, City Hospital or both campuses. 

Click here for further information about parking permits and the Trust's Travel Better scheme.

Please bear in mind that parking on both sites (particularly QMC) is limited, even if you have a permit parking on both sites. It may be more timely to park at the Park and Ride and travel in. You can find more information about the P&R here


Doctor's Mess

If you require access to the Doctor's Mess please contact MessApplications@nuh.nhs.uk.

You can download the application form for QMC here 

You can download the application form for City Hospital here

Your first day at NUH

On your first day at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trusts you are required to attend our virtual welcome which for rotations happens on the first Wednesday morning.

We will confirm the specific details nearer your start date.

Making the most of the induction materials and events provided for you will make a big difference to your early weeks of working at NUH. There are three aspects to our induction:

  • Team NUH Doctors' Induction - You must ensure you attend your virtual welcome and induction . This will give you some insights into how NUH works as an organisation and provides key information for you as a doctor in training with us.
  • Local induction Your new specialty will provide a local induction usually on the next few days after you start. The details should be sent to you by your rota coordinator or the education lead in your department.
  • Mandatory training - It is important your mandatory training is up to date as this enables the Trust to stay insured for the work you provide and provides important information to keep you, your patients, their carers and other staff safe. There are two aspects to mandatory training; online and face to face training including resuscitation and manual handling.  Please make sure you complete the required training on the applicant portal, ideally before you start but certainly within the first month. There is some time on your first day for this as well. 

Your new specialty will provide a local induction. Your rota coordinator will be able to provide further details including information about your local departmental inductions.

Your employment with NUH

Once you have started in post, NUH is committed to you and your experiences. Our relationship is key to us both achieving our outcome, therefore it is important that you are fully aware of the requirements of your post and that you are signposted correctly. Below are a few sign posts which will help you along your journey with team NUH.



We need to be able to keep in touch with you. You will be provided with a NUH email address for your time with us. Please ensure that you check this account regularly as this will give you access to the weekly Trust Briefing and important education and safety announcements. This is the address we will use to contact you.



You will be allocated a Clinical and/or Educational Supervisor and they will discuss your personal development plan with you. Make sure you meet with them formally at the start, during and at the end of your post to get the most out of the opportunities we have at NUH.
