Performance issues

The vast majority of F2 doctors will complete the programme without any major problems. However some doctors may need more support than others, for example for ill-health, personal issues, learning needs or attitude. If you feel at any time that the doctor under your educational or clinical supervision has performance issues you should discuss this with them at the earliest opportunity, if appropriate, and contact the Foundation Programme Director.

Working together you can ensure that the appropriate level of support is given both to you and the F2 doctor.

It is very important that you keep written records of the issues as they arise and that you document any discussions that you have with the F2 doctor regarding your concerns. Documentation should be on the ePortfolio.
