A revised FP reference guide came into effect from August 2016. The document is available to download from the UKFP web site (http://www.foundationprogramme.nhs.uk/pages/resource-bank). A summary of the key changes is available on the right hand side of the page.
It is a companion document to the FP Curriculum and should be used in conjunction with it.
Foundation doctors within STFS use the UK Foundation Medicine e-Portfolio developed by NES (NHS Education Scotland). F1s are issued with a username and password on entry to STFS.
The e-portfolio is the record of a foundation doctor’s achievements and evidence demonstrating completed outcomes as specified by the GMC. It is essential that foundation doctors populate the e-portfolio with supervised learning events, achievements and other evidence as it will be used to inform the end of year report to enable the foundation achievement of competency document to be completed.
The e-portfolio may also be used during interviews for appointment to core or specialty training.
See http://www.nhseportfolios.org for further details.
The GMC document Promoting excellence: standards for medical education and training sets out the standards and outcomes for postgraduate medical training including foundation training and is available to download from http://www.gmc-uk.org/education/postgraduate/standards_and_guidance.asp
Good Medical Practice sets out the principles and values on which good practice is founded; these principles together describe medical professionalism in action. The guidance is addressed to doctors, but it is also intended to let the public know what they can expect from doctors.
