Who is responsible for allocating F2 trainees to the GP practices?

Modified on Wed, 26 Apr 2023 at 12:44 PM

Trusts are responsible for the placement of their F2 trainees in to approved GP practices.

Trusts should work with practices to make allocations and notify HET once placements are confirmed via a template spreadsheet. Trusts can also discuss Practice/Supervisor status with the Patch AD for their area.

The placements will then be recorded to support practice payment. HET will continue manage and support the practice payments.

Trusts are responsible for:

  • Making GP F2 allocations based on data supplied by HET.

  • Contacting practices to discuss the allocations and ensure they have capacity and availability.

  • Working with Patch ADs to ensure that the matches are appropriate (in terms of Practice/Supervisor approval)

  • Ensuring that the trainees' commute to and from the Practice is a maximum of 90 minutes.

  • Notifying the trainees of their GP F2 allocations.

  • Notifying HET of the completed GP F2 allocations.

  • Keeping HET updated with any changes or concerns from trainees/Practices.

When making placements, trusts will be expected to take steps to fully utilise capacity and try to avoid practices/trainers being fallow all year, as well as ensuring that trainees are spread as evenly as possible throughout available practices. Where this cannot be avoided, trusts should also notify both practices and HET if they are unused within the initial allocation 16 weeks ahead of start date. These practices will remain as reserves to support any changes in circumstances that may occur throughout the year.
