Information on where to find help and support during and after your Foundation Training

Most trainees have a positive experience in their placements on their training programme. However, from time to time some of you may encounter a problem or issue that causes concern or you may just feel you require extra support. There are many people to support you throughout your training and your first port of call should be your educational supervisor.

If you feel you need further advice, contact your Foundation Programme Director. The Foundation Programme Director is responsible for overseeing a Foundation Programme and the education and training needs of each individual in the Programme. They are also there to provide pastoral support, counselling and guidance as necessary.

Contact details for FPDs and regional administration staff can be found on the regional tabs of Meet the Team and you can find more information on local contacts in Report a Concern.
