Foundation Programmes (YHFS) 2019-2021
Yorkshire and Humber Foundation School (YHFS) has over 560 Foundation programmes and 66 Academic programmes which amounts to over 1600 4 month FP FY1 & FY2 placements and 198 AFP FY1 & FY2 placements over more than 20 trusts.
The below spreadsheets list the programmes available in Yorkshire and Humber Foundation School (YHFS) for 2019- 2021 (North East, West and South Yorkshire). These are made up of 6 x 4 month placements with 6 different specialities including a Community Placement, GP and/or Psychiatry, in line with the requirements of the UK Foundation Programme Office (UKFPO)
We are reviewing some of the individual programme placements (4 month blocks) as there are still a small number that need to have their placement specialities and sites confirmed by the trusts. We have also introduced 18 Longitudinal Integrated Foundation Training (LIFT) posts for the August 2019 cohort; these programmes include 1 day of work in a GP Practice each week for the 24 months of the programme.
Programmes are always subject to change for a variety of reasons e.g. supervision issues, service reconfiguration, training issues, quality reports and trainee feedback.
These issues generally only affect a very small number of the placements within a very small number of the programmes in Yorkshire and Humber. Please be aware that we work with the trusts to ensure the programme placements allow you to have the best training experience and to allow you to achieve your Foundation competencies. We do try to avoid making changes to programmes where possible but for a number of reasons these can change at short notice. Any change to placements within programmes will not impact on your Foundation experience or future expectations.
