The Lead Employer Trust (LET)  team itself is a dedicated group of talented and friendly HR professionals and support staff that are available to ensure that your employment whilst training runs as smoothly as possible.

The LET has a dedicated Helpdesk to assist you with your queries. You can contact the Helpdesk on 0191 275 4782 or at nhc-tr.lethelpdesk.ne@nhs.net.

Each specialty has a designated HR Officer, HR Assistant and Payroll Officer.

HR Officers provide generalist HR advice to trainees and stakeholders in relation to terms and conditions of service, employment law, good employment practice, immigration and HR policies and procedures. HR Officers work closely with Training Programme Directors with regards to the operational practicalities of trainees rotating within their training programme. HR Officers also attend Trust inductions, Specialty Training Committees, School Boards and ARCP panels to provide HR advice and guidance.

HR Assistants support the HR Officers in their role to ensure a complete and timely service. HR Assistants are responsible for ensuring all pre-employment and return to work checks are completed, DBS checks and GMC/GDC registrations are renewed in a timely manner, maintaining employment records and assisting with assessment centres.

Payroll Officers process payments to all postgraduate doctors and postgraduate learners on a training programme with Health Education England in the North East and North Cumbria. This includes salary, maternity pay, enhancements, etc. They also deal with all payroll-related queries in relation to trainee doctors and dentists.

In addition, we also have Expenses Officers who process all travel expenses claims and provide advice on the process, and a Recharge Officer who liaises directly with Trusts regarding funding and are also responsible for recovering salaries paid via Payroll.
