Is the ‘period of grace’ that follows completion of training extended pro rata for LTFT trainees?

No, the period of grace is six months whether you are LTFT or full-time. As this period is intended to give people time to find consultant posts, there is no logical reason why this should be extended for LTFT trainees. A single extension to the period of grace may be granted by a Postgraduate Dean, if there are good reasons why that person is unable to obtain a consultant post. Such reasons may include: shortage of jobs available, demonstration of having applied unsuccessfully for jobs, geographical limitation due to spouse or family commitments. Extensions are not likely to be granted to people in shortage specialties.
