Application Guidance - IPT 2017



Inter Programme Transfers (IPT) to commence December 2017 and April 2018

If you are a GP trainee in the Kent, Surrey and Sussex GP School and wish to be considered for an IPT to continue your GP training in another part of HEE KSS, you will need to complete an application form. 

Please note that eligibility for a transfer is determined by the criteria and trainees will have to complete 12 months in post before they can move and are subject to the trainee receiving a satifactory ARCP outcome.

In addition, even if a transfer is agreed by the Training Programme Directors (TPDs) where the trainee is at present, the transfer can go ahead only if the receiving programme area has the capacity to do this.

Training vacancies in other programme areas may not be readily available and arrangements therefore may take some time to set up. Please note that only transfers that are arranged through the HEE KSS IPT process can be honoured.

Transfers for the final year of GP training (ST3) are usually easier to organise, as finding the appropriate combination of hospital posts for a GP trainee transferring for the ST2 year, and who has already done certain posts, can be very difficult.

To apply for a transfer, you should read the HEE KSS GP ITP Guidance.

Please complete the Inter Programme Transfer Application form together with the Inter Programme Assessment Form. You will also need to include your most recent Educational Supervisor Report and your ARCP results. You should also include any  documentation such as medical reports that support your reason for applying. Forms need to be signed by your TPD before being returned by email ONLY to


  • The application window opens at on Friday 4 August 2017 and will close on Friday 1 September 2017 at 4.00pm. No applications will be accepted after this time. If are are applying for a transfer it is your responsibility to ensure that paperwork is signed where appropriate and all documentation is returned by email by the closing date. All incomplete and late paperwork will automatically be rejected at panel.

Inter Deanery Transfers



The National Inter Deanery Transfer (IDT) process has been established to support trainees who have had an unforeseen and significant change in their personal circumstances since the commencement of their current training programme which requires a move to a different region. The process is managed by the National IDT team (Health Education England London & South East) on behalf of the Conference of Postgraduate Medical Deans (COPMeD), Health Education England (HEE) and all UK regions.


In order to provide a consistent, transparent and robust process for all trainees, the National IDT team will make all decisions on eligibility and allocations in accordance with the published guidelines and criteria. You can read these guidelines and criteria as well as find out much more about the process by visiting the National IDT webpages, which have been migrated to a new home on HEE’s specialty training website here:


You can also contact the National IDT team directly with any queries you may have by emailing


As part of the application process, all trainees will be required to submit a ‘Deanery Document’. This form can be found on the National IDT website above and should be sent to your current region’s administrative team for completion. To find out exactly who this should be sent to, please read the ‘Directory for regional IDT contacts’, also found on the website above.
