COVID-19: Information for HEE NE doctors and dentists in training, faculty & stakeholders

Are you a healthworker returning to practice, wishing to volunteer or can you do extra shifts/additional hours?

If so, please leave your details here.

In this rapidly moving and challenging time, HEE NE have created this specific webpage resource with the aim to help keep our doctors and dentists in training up to date and informed. We also hope this resource will be helpful for our PGMDE faculty and partner NHS trusts and wider stakeholders. 

We will be continually updating this website as further information, documentation and announcements occur. 

This local HEE NE resource should be read in conjunction with HEE’s national dedicated website:

We hope these resources answer any queries that you may have, however if you have any specific queries please email and we will endeavour to resolve your query as soon as possible.
