North London Foundation School (NLFS)

South Thames Foundation School (STFS)

 

The London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex Foundation Schools website contains detailed information about local programmes, policies and processes for the 2 schools.You may access the website at the following address; https://london.hee.nhs.uk/medical-training/foundation.

 

Please note that the information on the website refers to the previous two separate schools of North Central and East London Foundation School and North West London Foundation School, as the changes detailed below will not come into effect until August 2022 & August 2023. 

 

For more infomation you may contact the recruitment team via the applicant support portal: https://lasepgmdesupport.hee.nhs.uk/support/home

 

London & KSS Foundation Schools Reconfiguration

Important changes are being made to how the foundation schools for London and KSS are structured. There will also be significant expansion of foundation posts from 2023 to meet the training needs for the graduates from the increased medical school places in both London and KSS.

London will be moving to a Pan London Foundation School to be in place for August 2023. As the first step the current two schools of North Central and East London and North West London are being merged for the August 2022 intake. This will not affect trainees already in programme but will allow greater flexibility and help with expansion planning.

The South Thames Foundation School (STFS) will be uncoupling. The KSS Foundation School will be managed by a new team within the South East region. This will allow medical graduates from the Kent & Medway Medical School,  those from Brighton & Sussex Medical School, and other trainees who choose to train in KSS to remain within KSS for the duration of their foundation training.

The current South Thames programmes are being reconfigured to ensure that F1 trainees starting in either KSS or South London in August 2022 can apply to two-year programmes in either location when choosing their preferred rotations, rather than programmes composed of a year in each area.

Doctors wishing to apply to train in South London will be able to preference programmes:

  • South London West
  • South London East

Doctors wishing to apply to train in KSS will be able to preference programmes:

  • KSS West
  • KSS Central
  • KSS East

Trainees recruited to STFS-managed foundation programmes commencing in August 2021, and who would be entering FY2 training in August 2022, will continue to complete their allocated foundation training programme within STFS.

There may be a small number of trainees in cross-border programmes beyond 2023, where there have been changes to an individual’s training programme due to unforeseen circumstance, such as OOP, Outcome 3, Statutory leave or working less than full time. These trainees will be managed on an individual basis.

Units of Application (UoA)

Foundation Programme (FP), Foundation Priority Programmes (FPP) and Foundation Fellowship Programmes (PFF)

For recruitment to the 2022/23 Foundation Programme (FP), Foundation Priority Programmes (FPP) and Psychiatry Foundation Fellowship Programmes (PFF), each of the two foundation schools detailed above is a separate Unit of Application (UoA).

 

Specialised Foundation Programme (SFP)

For recruitment to the Specialised Foundation Programme (SFP), London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex (LaKSS) is the single specialised unit of application (SUoA) for the two foundation schools detailed above.

The programme information will also be available to download from this page as an Excel spreadsheet. A definitive list of 2022/23 programmes will be available both on Oriel and to download from this webpage in early February 2022.

It is important to note that the NHS is constantly changing and, even after being matched to an individual programme, there may be situations when placements within that programme may change because of service redesign, working time directive regulations or national directives (UK-wide).  For this reason, all allocations are provisional and subject to change until confirmed by employing organisations.

 

4. Preferencing Programme Information & Matching Process

If you are allocated to one of the 2 London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex foundation schools, you will be invited to preference programmes within the school you have been allocated to.

 

Applicants allocated to North London Foundation School will be invited to rank the programmes in order of preference between 10 March 2022 - 31 March 2022. There will be no group preferencing stage for applicants allocated to the North London Foundation School. ​Applicants will be notified via Oriel of their match to individual programmes on 7 April 2022. 

 

 

Two Stage Preferencing Process 

As the South Thames Foundation school has a larger number of programmes, the programmes have been clustered into groups. In this instance, applicants will be matched to programmes in two stages: -

 

Stage 1: Matched to a group

Applicants are required to rank the South Thames Foundation School groups in order of preference between 10 March 2022 - 16 March 2022. Applicants will be matched to groups based on their rank and group preferences on 21 March 2021.

 

Groups within South Thames Foundation School

 Group Name 

 Group Description 

KSS East    

Provides 2 years in trusts in Kent, Surrey and Sussex to the East of the patch.

KSS Central

Provides 2 years in trusts in Kent, Surrey and Sussex to the Centre of the patch.

KSS West

Provides 2 years in trusts in Kent, Surrey and Sussex to the West of the patch.

South London East

Provides 2 years in trusts in South London to the East of the patch.

South London West

Provides 2 years in trusts in South London to the West of the patch.

 

Stage 2: Matched to a programme

Once matched to groups, applicants will be invited to rank the programmes within that group in order of preference between 21 March 2022 - 31 March 2022. ​ Applicants will be notified via Oriel of their match to individual programmes on 7 April 2022. 

 

IMPORTANT: applicants are advised to save preference choices regularly on the Oriel system. Failure to save group / programme preferences by the deadline will result in a random allocation to a group / programme with the most vacancies. Late preferences cannot be submitted under any circumstances.

 

Please note that amending preferences will force links between applications to be broken, even if the final order of preferences is the same. Applicants must choose whether they want to change their preferences or maintain their link to the applicant they are initially linked with.

 

5. Decile & Quartile Score Ranges Within Each Foundation School

Infomation to be provided once applicants have been allocated to Foundation School. 

 

6. Programme Fair

Information will be made readily available to applicants via this webpage in due course. 

 

7. Shadowing Arrangements

Newly appointed F1 doctors are required to attend a period of preemployment shadowing of the F1 doctor you will be taking over from before the start of the programme. Employers will provide details of local arrangements.

You will be required to undertake a mandatory induction and shadowing period for a minimum of 4 days at the Trust before 03 August 2022 (Please be aware that some Trusts organise longer periods of shadowing and you are advised to be available from 25 July 2022. 

 

8. Linked Applications

If you have linked your application on the Oriel system and wish to retain this link at the group allocation stage (for STFS only), both applicants will need to rank the five groups in the same order of preference or the link will be broken.

WARNING: The score of the lower scoring applicant will be used to allocate both linked applicants to a group. It is only possible to break the link at this stage by both applicants ranking groups in a different order.

Linked applications are not taken into account at the programme allocation stage and your individual scores are used to allocate you to a programme.

If you both wish to be allocated to the same Trust, ranking programmes in your group in exactly the same order may increase the chances of this. However, we cannot guarantee that you will be allocated to the same Trust or programme as the applicant you are linked with, particularly if there is a significant difference in your scores.

Please note that amending preferences will force links between applications to be broken, even if the final order of preferences is the same. Applicants must choose whether they want to change their preferences or maintain their link to the applicant they are initially linked with.

 

9. Pre-Allocation (Previously known as Special Circumstances)

A small number of F1 doctors have special circumstances approval from their graduating medical school in order to ensure allocation to a foundation school in an appropriate geographical location.

All applicants are now required to submit offline applications directly to the UKFPO team. Applications will be considered by a central panel and pre-allocations will be actioned on Oriel by UKFPO staff.

Foundation Priority Programmes (FPP)

Foundation Priority Programmes (FPP) have been developed to support specific areas of the UK that have historically found it difficult to attract and retain trainees through the foundation and specialty recruitment processes. The main aim is to maximise the opportunity for applicants who wish to be located in less popular areas and therefore improve supply for specialty training and beyond.

During 2019/20 and 2020/21, priority programmes, specifically designed to attract and retain trainees in remote, rural and coastal geographies, under-doctored geographies and shortage specialties, with psychiatry as an initial priority, will be introduced and evaluated. These programmes also often a range of incentives.

As part of this process, applicants will have the opportunity to rank individual priority programmes that have been determined by a specific location as part of the application form and prior to national allocation to FP. Successful applicants will be offered specific programmes prior to national allocation to foundation schools.
