Less Than Full Time Training (LTFT)
Health Education England (HEE) is committed to increasing flexibility in postgraduate medical training. As a part of HEE’s work to Enhance Junior Doctors Working Lives several initiatives have been developed with partners to increase flexibility within Post Graduate Medical Education. Feedback from trainees indicate that many trainees would appreciate the opportunity to pursue a more flexible approach to their training. Hence why HEE East of England (EOE) has a strong commitment to helping all doctors reach their full potential and to helping those with child-caring or other responsibilities or health problems, to continue training.
HEE fully endorses the principles set out in the Gold Guide.
Any trainee in a substantive HEE approved post can apply for less than full time training (LTFT) if they meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the FAQs below. If deemed eligible, LTFT arrangements will be accommodated as soon as practically possible.
