Concerns regarding IMY3 standalone post

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow has heard trainee concerns regarding allocation of IMY3 posts both in Scotland and in England.

Further to our news update about posts in NHS England, we would like to acknowledge that we have also heard concerns from trainees in Scotland. We express our empathy that this process creates added stress in what is an already very stressful environment. Our College values its trainees and are proud of the resilience they have shown, but also fully appreciate and understand the impact of this on their wellbeing. They are the future of medicine and are essential to our NHS. It is important that we support these trainees and ensure they can continue their training, particularly in the context of the shortage of clinicians across the UK. Please be assured that the Royal Colleges are working with our trainee committees to help alleviate the situation as best as we can.

Our Trainees’ Committee has written to members of the College regarding this and have answered some commonly asked questions on the topic of IMY3 posts. This can be downloaded below.

We are here to support trainees throughout the UK. If you do have concerns, then please get in touch on traineecommittee@rcpsg.ac.uk
