Round 2

After round 1 is complete, a second round of recruitment will be held which opens for applications in late-summer.

We have added a separate page with information about round 2.

2023 recruitment

Details on recruitment to physician HST programmes starting from August 2023 will be added to this website during autumn 2022. 

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot be sure whether recruitment will continue in 2023 with online interviews or there will be a return to face-to-face interview centres. The news page of the website will be the place to monitor major announcements about the process. In the interim, the content held on this website currently can be taken as a guide as to what to expect but bearing in mind there could be significant changes.

Local recruitment

In the meantime, there may be short-term PHST-level non-training posts being recruited to locally by hospitals.

Usually this will take the form of LAS (locum appointment for service) posts, and recruitment procedures and requirements will be set by the appointing region/hospital. Where posts are advertised depends on the nation where the post is based:

As this recruitment is carried out locally, vacancies could be advertised at any time and so you are advised to check back regularly if you are interested in seeking a post.
