Employment - Salary, Annual leave etc. FAQs
These are the most frequently asked questions about salary and employment during your Foundation Training in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The basic salary for an F1 doctor can be found on www.nhsemployers.org.
Some posts within HEE YH may carry a banding supplement. However, this occurs at the trust's discretion so they should be contacted if further information is required about specific placements.
Annual leave works out at 9 days per 4 month post (plus bank holidays) but is organised locally within Trusts/departments – this may be planned into the rota or more flexible.
In F1, GMC requirements state that if you miss more than 4 weeks training, over and above your statutory leave (annual leave and approved study leave) you may fail to obtain F1 sign off and hence full registration.
Salary, banding and on-call are all managed by the Trusts. You should contact the Employing Trust. Contact details are usually available on the Trusts' websites.
If you require references for a mortgage or letting agencies to confirm your salary and banding please contact your local trust human resources or wages department.
Please do not contact the Yorkshire and the Humber Foundation School as we do not have any information on salary and banding.
Applicants with children, primary caring responsibilities or health issues may wish to undertake their Foundation Training LTFT.
Working LTFT means working 50% of the hours of a full-time trainee.
Applicants must have been successfully appointed to a full-time programme before they are able to apply. Deaneries may approve trainees either as supernumerary or as a ‘slot share’. See the policies section for more information on LTFTT.
Trainees wishing to take a year out of their training between F1 and F2 may apply for TOFP, subject to approval by the FS. HEE YH is happy to support applications subject to demand.
Since 2010 entry, HEE YH Foundation schools are no longer able to support trainees wishing to do F2 abroad.
Information about accommodation can be obtained from individual Trusts. Contact details can be found on the Trusts' websites.
