SuppoRTT Champions


What is a SuppoRTT Champion?

SuppoRTT Champions are based in every secondary care trust and Specialty School in London & Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Their role is to provide leadership within the Trust/School to ensure that the SuppoRTT strategy is fully implemented and results in a high-quality supported return to training for all concerned.

The SuppoRTT Champion:

   -  Oversees the return-to-training process;

   -  Provides trainees and supervisors with guidance regarding the relevant policies and available resources.

The trainee’s first point of contact is their educational supervisor or training programme director throughout the return-to-work process. However, if additional guidance and support is required trainees, educators and other staff can contact their local SuppoRTT Champion and the SuppoRTT team.
