Clinical Fellowship Programme

UHL has developed the Clinical Fellowship Programme, to improve the career pathways and cultural experiences of all LED working at our Trust.

What is the Clinical Fellowship Programme

In September 2022, UHL agreed to adopt the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO) LED Charter, to improve the career pathways and cultural experiences of all LED working at our Trust. Our health services could not function without LE and IMG doctors, therefore providing a quality experience that attracts, develops, and retains this workforce is essential.

Through the programme UHL aims:

  • To design an attractive offering for locally employed doctors and ensure a quality consistent employee experience, to ensure UHL becomes an employer of choice for doctors (UK & International).
  • To reduce avoidable reliance on temporary staffing i.e., agency/locum.
  • To create a workforce pipeline to hard to fill posts and service expansions.
  • To become a regional recruitment hub.

Through the fellowship, all our fellows will receive an:

  • Enhanced pre-arrival, induction and pastoral support
  • Education and Clinical Supervision
  • Personal Development Plan and Enhanced Study Leave allowance on top of 10 Standard Study Leave days
  • Well-designed and supported career pathways
  • Standardised CESR programme for Advanced Fellows and SAS Doctors


As part of your pre-arrival you will:

Attend a Pre-Arrival Session. If you are a new Trust Grade / Clinical Fellow you will be contacted by the CFP team, inviting you to a pre-arrival session, hosted by the Programme Clinical Lead and LED Tutor. This usually takes place on the last Thursday of each month via MS Teams. This will provide an opportunity for new Trust Grades / Clinical Fellows to ask questions and listen to recent fellows who have successfully started at UHL.

Receive a Welcome Toolkit. WELCOME TOOLKIT This contains key information to help new starters settle – information about travel, accommodation, opening bank account.

Be Assigned an Early Support Buddy. There is a lot to take in for new Trust Grade doctors / Clinical Fellows starting at UHL. The CFP Team will assign you a buddy during your initial period starting at UHL. This is an informal forum to ask questions and be open, to provide tailored support and assistance to ensure all new doctors at UHL are made to feel welcome. Support may include:

    • More information about working at UHL and living in Leicester.
    • Guidance on how to navigate the initial period at UHL
    • Practical advice – where to get scrubs/uniform, staff badge, doctors mess, social networks/groups (places of worship, interests and hobbies).
  • GMC Welcome to UK Practice (Face to Face). If you are new to the UK and NHS, this interactive session will help you adapt to UK medical practice and guidance on good medical practice. These sessions will take place quarterly and you will be contacted by the CFP Team.

    Welcome Meeting. Hosted by the LED Tutor, this provides an opportunity to feedback any challenges and issues you may have encountered in your first few weeks at UHL. You will be invited to this session by the CFP Team.

    Enhanced Induction. Hosted by the Programme Clinical Lead and LED Tutor, this interactive session will cover topics on: Career planning, Wellbeing Support, Educational supervision, Freedom to Speak up. You will be invited to this workshop by the CFP Team.
