LTFT training uptake is increasing and LTFT trainees now make up almost a half of BSA trainees. There is a wide spread of trainees taking up LTFT training for various reasons.
In this section you will find Key Resources for LTFT trainees, including the application/change form, and the recently updated ‘Parenting Pack’ full of a wealth of information about pregnancy and parenting as an anaesthetist.
Do not hesitate to get in touch with Julia or Helen if you have any queries about any issues. The LTFT trainee rep can raise any issues at 3 monthly school/deanery meetings, and 6 monthly LTFT meetings. There is also a WhatsApp group you can join – email Julia with your mobile number to be added.

This leaflet was created for ES/TPDs, but please feel free to have a look at the resources as they may also help you to clarify training needs.
Use this tool to input of your % LTFT and dates for each trust/grade. It will then automatically calculate your full time equivalent and give a nice summary of your training. This can be used for any trainee and can also incorporate research, OOPE/OOPT etc.
Useful, not only for your own records and planning ahead but also useful to upload to LLP for ARCPs to give a clear summary of your training (not compulsory for ARCP).
