Less-Than-Full-Time (LTFT) Training in Foundation

In Scotland we are committed and keen to encourage Less-Than-Full-Time (LTFT) training in the Scottish Foundation School and adhere to the relevant regulations as set out in the Foundation reference guide.

The operational arrangements to allow flexible training in Foundation are potentially complex and this document outlines these. There is no guarantee that a doctor can be placed in any specific programme. All placements are the result of discussion with all parties.
