Trusts Affiliated to STFS

South Thames Foundation School (STFS) is responsible for issuing educational approval for Foundation Training Programmes within its associated NHS Trusts and overseeing the management of Foundation Trainees within those programmes. Foundation doctors are employed by, and have contracts with, individual NHS trusts. Please note that each Trust may have slightly different local practices/arrangements (within national NHS policies/guidelines)

A list of Trusts affiliated to STFS can be found below together with the hospital switchboard number.

F1 and F2 programme information 

Each NHS trust provides F1 and F2 programme information on an annual basis and this is available to view on the STFS Trust pages (see links below). These contain downloadable programme information in spreadsheet format along with more detailed individual placement description documents (IPDs) in PDF format. Please note however that this information is provisional and may be subject to change. Precise details of rotations are subject to NHS service delivery requirements and subsequent confirmation by employing trusts.

Service reconfiguration in the NHS

Across the UK many NHS hospital trusts are undergoing service reconfiguration, and these include some linked to STFS. Any major service changes often also result in changes to training programmes, for example when a specialty is moved to another site. Programme and post information is therefore subject to confirmation by employing trusts at the pre-employment stage of allocation.

If you are a foundation doctor appointed to STFS via the national allocation system you are guaranteed a 2-year programme within STFS (provided that you progress satisfactorily). If your programme has to be changed then STFS will ensure that your revised programme still gives you the opportunity to meet all of the requirements of the FP curriculum. We endeavour to provide as much information as possible as soon as it is available, and choice of revised programmes where feasible. If you have any concerns about potential changes at your current trust we would recommend discussing this with your local foundation training programme director in the first instance.
