Medical Recruitment ST3 Update


Since learning of the error in the offers process for applicants to ST3 recruitment into higher medical specialties, NES has been working closely with the Royal College of Physicians of London and partner national education bodies to ensure that action was taken to resolve as quickly as possible.

We appreciate that this has been a worrying and difficult time for those doctors directly affected, and were pleased to hear from the Royal College of Physicians that revised offers for ST3 posts will be issued this afternoon (Thursday 10th May 2018).

NES will do everything in our power to support trainees previously offered a post in Scotland or trainees who were hoping to transfer into Scotland and who may have been affected by this problem.

We would welcome contact and will positively review each case on an individual basis alongside our partner education bodies. The relevant contact details are available on the Royal College of Physicians website,

Scotland-specific queries should be sent to
