On Tuesday 24 February 2015, STFS held its annual Foundation Faculty Briefing. The programme allowed STFS to provide an update to its stakeholders on the on-going work. It allowed presentations on the effects of Broadening and updates on the work by the Less Than Full Time Training and Careers team. The programme also included BTFP case study presentations from St George’s Healthcare Foundation Trust and Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust.
We were very pleased to have Professor Sir Simon Wessely, President of Royal College of Psychiatrists, giving a talk on the effects of Broadening on recruitment of doctors.

In addition Christine Bridge, STFS Foundation School Manager spoke on the Less Than Full-time Training while Lisa Stone and Margaret Holbrough from the Careers team provided updates about the work in Careers department.
