Trainer Information

Inter Regional Transfers (IRT)

At some point in training it may be necessary to consider moving to another part of Scotland to continue training because of unforeseen or significant changes in personal circumstances.

The process for trainees who wish to transfer from one region to another in the Scotland Deanery is detailed here.

It is important that PDs do not engage with potential applicants as this may invalidate the application.

Trainees who wish to transfer to England, Wales or Northern Ireland must use the UK Inter-Deanery Transfer Process (IDT).
