Foundation Programme - all applicants now allocated

The UK Foundation Programme Office has announced that all reserve list applicants have now been allocated a place on the 2014 Foundation Programme. The UKFPO announced in October 2013 that applicant demand was higher than places available on the scheme, and over 200 applicants were placed on a reserve list. Allocations in May and June 2014 mean that all applicants on the reserve list have now been allocated a place a month earlier than expected.

This means that applicants should have sufficient time to complete all pre-employment checks in order to start the Foundation Programme on schedule.

The allocation of all reserve list applicants marks the end of the 2014 Foundation Programme national application process. Postgraduate deaneries, LETBs and foundation schools will now liaise with employers to decide how to fill any vacancies that may arise between now and August. 

Make sure you are ready for your new foundation doctors by checking our related links at the side of this page, which include a timetable, and advice and guidance on the Shadowing Period. Our Streamlining webpages also have helpful case studies on streamlining junior doctor rotations and employment checks.
