Changes to Round 1 and Round 2 specialty recruitment interview dates and hold and upgrade deadlines following recent industrial action

Published on 17 March 2023

Following the recent British Medical Association (BMA) announcement that junior doctors would be taking part in industrial action a decision was taken to reschedule all specialty recruitment interviews scheduled to take place during this period. 

Interviews have now been rescheduled and applicants can see the revised dates on the Specialty Recruitment Interview Schedule.

We can also confirm that we will be extending the hold and upgrade deadlines for both Round 1 and Round 2. Details are available on the recruitment timelines page. This will allow all applicants affected by industrial action to have a full picture on the status of all their applications before making final decisions on offers received.
