Health Education England's Statement for LTFT Trainees working as Locum's

LTFT trainees can do locum shifts but it is expected that this will be in the department where they are working and have educational supervision. Trainees must follow the Good Medical Practice standards. The expectation is that 1-2 locum shifts per month may be undertaken. If it is more than this then this needs discussion with Dr Helen Goodyear, Associate Dean for LTFT training to discuss working at a higher percentage of fulltime. Trainees are encouraged to discuss any issues re doing locums they are uncertain about with Dr Goodyear. A LTFT trainee should not be doing locum shifts for slots left empty by them working LTFT.
