LTFT GMC Position Statement - October 2011

In October 2011 the GMC’s Postgraduate Board concluded that the current arrangements are unsatisfactory and that a minimum time requirement for LTFT should be re-established, with specialty trainees working no less than 50% of full time training.

For the small number of trainees who experience exceptional difficulties, it has been agreed that postgraduate deans should have flexibility to reduce the time requirement further. The absolute minimum would be 20% of full-time training, with an expectation that trainees should not undertake a placement at this level for more than 12 months.
