Foundation Year 2

Special Circumstances

Special circumstances are personal circumstances that may significantly impact on your work /life balance if allowances are not made i.e. being a parent. In most cases, those who meet the criteria and are awarded special circumstances are placed in a defined geographical area i.e. near your childs’ school.

If you wish to apply for special circumstances that will apply during your F2 year, you will need to apply whilst still an F1. Please see the following link for 2011 Special circumstances

Flexible training

Flexible training: In certain circumstances it may be appropriate for foundation doctors to consider training flexibly for example if you have a young child / health reasons. Please refer to the London Deanery (for London Trusts) and the East of England Deanery (for Essex Trusts) for information about eligibility and how to apply.
