LTFT - FAQs.
|We will consider all LTFT applications, including category 1 and 2. Full details are available at https://www.scotlanddeanery.nhs.scot/trainee-information/less-than-full-time-training-ltft/.|
The answer to this is yes - you will be paid for the hours that you work, but it may take some time to sort out the practicalities of this. We are working to develop an abbreviated Form D which will allow us to amend your record to help minimise any delay.
Yes, you can increase your working hours if you wish. However, it is important that you complete an abridged Form D so that we can ensure that HR and payroll are aware of the change. The form can be found at https://www.scotlanddeanery.nhs.scot/covid-19/returning-to-service-from-oop-screds-or-ltft-training-to-help-support-the-covid-19-response/
We will maintain your increased LTFT hours for up to 6 months as required and then we will automatically change you back to your normal LTFT hours unless we hear from you to the contrary.
Yes. If you do not wish to increase your hours temporarily you can do locum shifts during the COVID 19 crisis. You must inform your Lead Employer to ensure they are supportive of this. You must also be sure that you do not work beyond your competency.
|Locum work is deemed to be service and while there will be experiential learning it is unlikely to count towards you training. However, we would encourage you to keep a record and evidence of learning during locum work in the event that you wish this to count towards your training.|
|This will be considered on a case by case basis. While we anticipate that working extra hours will not alter your CCT date , we do recognise that there will be opportunities for good experiential learning. Any competencies gained will be considered in trainee progression. WE encourage everyone to document all competecies gaines for an assessment made in preparation for ARCPs.|
