All trainees find jobs

  • Date: 22 July 2013

ALL trainee doctors have been given jobs after spending months on a waiting list. The final 33 reserve list applicants were allocated places on July 8.

It was confirmed last October that oversubscription to the Foundation Programme had left 295 trainees without jobs.

In April and May, 98 reserve list applicants were found a job with a further 138 allocated the following month. Twenty-six trainees have dropped out since the start of the allocation process.

The remaining posts have now been allocated more than two weeks ahead of schedule after the UKFPO ran an additional batch allocation.

UKFPO national director Professor Derek Gallen welcomed the move and said it means all trainees would be ready to start their foundation training on time.

Any vacancies which arise between now and August will be filled by postgraduate deaneries in conjunction with foundation schools.
