In Summer 2013 the LNR and Trent foundation schools introduced ARCPs for all foundation doctors. See this section for more information
Health Education England (HEE) has overall responsibility for the management and delivery of postgraduate medical education and for the continuing professional development of all foundation doctors within the patch.
The East Midlands foundation programme is made up of two foundation schools, each linked to a medical school:
Dr Robert Powell is the Director of Foundation Training in the East Midlands. He is supported by an Associate Director in each school; Dr Charlie Mackaness (LNR) and Dr Nick Spittle (Trent). Drs Powell, Mackaness and Spittle are supported by an administrative team based at Health Education England's East Midlands office.
Introduced in 2005 as part of the Modernising Medical Careers initiative the foundation training programme is the entry route for postgraduate medical training in the United Kingdom. The Foundation Training Programme forms the bridge between medical school and specialist/general practice training. It is a two-year generic training programme offering exposure in a variety of healthcare settings and is designed to provide a general overview of clinical specialties to enable trainees to make more informed decisions about future career choices.
If you are concerned that there is an inappropriate balance between service and education in your current rotation/training programme then the foundation schools advise that you discuss your concerns with the Foundation Training Programme Director at your base hospital, with HEE's quality team at their HR clinics and/or report this to the foundation school via email@example.com.
You can also raise such concerns through the end of placement surveys or at HEE’s quality management visits to hospital sites.
