The three Royal Colleges of Physicians census of higher specialty trainees is now available to complete until Wednesday 31 March 2021.

The information you give is crucial in our discussions with government about the pressures on the NHS and their impact on staff wellbeing. This will also help us identify key issues within the workforce so trainee doctors receive the investment, support and recognition they deserve and the country needs.

We would be very grateful for your help to enable us to continue to influence the development of UK health and care policy. It will only take 10-15 minutes of your time to complete this year’s census of higher specialist trainees in the UK by Wednesday 31 March 2021

You can access the census form through the unique link that will be emailed to you. This link is specific to you and should not be passed on to a colleague.
