Working with doctors Working for patients

Less than full time training

We have updated our position on less than full-time (LTFT) training for doctors working towards a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT).

This revises our 2011 statement and sets out conditions to make sure that the duration, level and quality of LTFT training, is not less than that of continuous training.

The statement clarifies the role we have in maintaining the quality of UK training.
