Less Than Full Time (LTFT) training is offered by Health Education East Midlands. It is available at 50% for ST1 GP placements and all hospital posts. There has to be a post vacant that could accommodate LTFT working and may need a job-share in hospital posts. GP placements in ST2 and ST3 can be at 60%.
You can request LTFT training only if you are: caring for young children; caring for dependent relatives or for health reasons.

This booklet will help you to understand what LTFT training will mean to you:
If your application for LTFT working is successful, remember that your total ST year e-portfolio and evidence requirements stay the same but is just spread over a longer period of time (eg 2 years for 50% LTFT instead of 1 year). If you have had a career break too, your ESR dates and ARCP panel dates can become complicated and out of sync. Please make sure you are aware of when these are and check with a programme director if you are not sure.
