LTFT Mentors/Trainees
"I was extremely reticent to apply for LTFT as I thought professionally it might reflect poorly on me. In reality I have met with overwhelming support from both other registrars and also my consultants." - Laura Blackburn, ST3 Gastroenterology trainee. 

 

 

 

Our Programme Director for LTFT, Dr Francesca Crawley, has been working hard to allocate specific LTFT mentors in each school/specialty.

We thought it would be helpful to identify a dedicated LTFT consultant mentor and trainee mentor for each school/specialty.

The purpose of these roles is to provide advice and support to trainees looking to apply or already working LTFT.

Please find the below contact details for the Consultant and Trainee LTFT Mentor for your school/specialty.

Please feel free to contact them for advice relating to LTFT training.

As well as this please feel free to direct any queries relating to the LTFT application process to our generic inbox:  ltft.eoe@hee.nhs.uk

❝My name is Sarah Leiter and I’m currently an FY1 at Addenbrookes. I have been training less-than-full-time since the starting work. Alongside being a doctor, I am an athlete representing Great Britain at the Paralympic Sport of goalball. I currently work 70% to give me time for training and to attend international competitions. To negotiate a complex rota, you have to be pro-active and prepared to negotiate at times but my experience has been positive so far.❞

West Hertfordshire Trust
Former LTFT Trainee - Now an ENT Consultant
 

Image I worked as a LTFT Training for 8 years and would have left medicine otherwise. It enabled me to continue my surgical training and take my FRCS exams whilst caring for 2 children and living apart from my husband who was a locum consultant in another city. When I started I was the only trainee working LTFT Ttraining in my speciality, there have since been 6 others and it is now a well established pathway in the region I trained in. I’m keen to encourage trainees who might benefit from working LTFT Training to continue to work whilst maintaining their caring responsibilities. Image

 

Former LTFT Trainee - Now a Consultant in Emergency Medicine

ImageTraining LTFT in the east of England has made a considerable difference to me personally by improving my work / life balance. I love the fact that I can work hard and enjoy my job at the beginning of the week but I can also have days away from work each week to spend precious time with my children. Image
