Person Specifications

The 2020 person specifications are published below under each level.

It is important to study the person specification for each specialty entry level to which you might apply. Each specification clearly states the entry requirements for that level and will help you decide which level is most appropriate for you. Applying to the most appropriate level will optimise your chances of success.

Note: Entry level requirements may differ between Scotland and England.

Please ensure that you check the lead recruitment website or the UK specialty training website for the most up to date person specifications and guidance.
