Less Than Full Time (LTFT)

How to seek support with less than full time (LTFT) working.

Dr Katherine Rouse is the point of contact and expertise for LTFT issues, advocating for trainees where this is helpful, and promoting and improving existing support.

She works closely with the Guardian of Safe Working and the SuppoRRT Champion, liaising with the Medical Education Department and Clincal/Educational Supervisors.

Katherine's aim is to improve the working lives of Junior Doctors working LTFT within the Trust, which in turn often leads to an improvement in overall wellbeing.

Katherine can be contacted on for any LTFT queries.
