Referral forms

To make a referral to the Professional Support Unit (PSU) please download and complete the relevant referral form. Exam support is currently the only reason we accept as self-referral.

  • For most referrals, The Referral Framework Form should be completed by your TPD or Educational Supervisor
    • In order to put appropriate support in place, the PSU will be in contact with the trainee after the referral is reviewed. The PSU will need to arrange a Case Manager meeting to discuss the referral further and support will be put in place after this.
    • Please note  the trainee you wish to refer needs to have sight of these forms before they are submitted. 


  • Exam Support for repeated exam failure can be either a self-referral or by your Training Programme Director/Educational Supervisor
    • Repeated exam failure does not usually require a case manager meeting and the trainee will be contacted by the PSU Administrator for additional information before putting any support in place.
    • We do have a criteria where the trainee would need to have either repeated their exams 2 or more times, or there is a pattern of failed attempts in two or more exams.

Once the form has been completed, or if you have any questions before submitting the form, email

When making a referral to the PSU we would ask that you read and familiarise yourself with our Professional Support for Doctors in Training Guidance which governs our practices and processes.
