Each year the South Thames Foundation School invites its prospective F1s to attend a programme fair before they rank their programme preferences. Each trust within the region has a stall staffed by clinical, administrative and trainee representatives from the trust. A full list of each Trust is available for viewing.

It is an opportunity for foundation doctors to ask questions in person and obtain a greater understanding of what each trust may have to offer before submitting their programme preferences.

The programme fair for 2018 entrants will be held on Friday 16th March 2018 in Glaziers Hall 10 minutes from London Bridge railway and tube stations

At the fair you can:

  • Attend a talk on programme allocation and foundation training
  • Discuss training options with representatives from all 18 NHS acute hospital trusts, 6 mental health trusts and general practices in STFS
  • Meet staff from STFS, related organisations and professional bodies

Attendees will receive a trainee pack on arrival at the programme fair which contains an overview of STFS, a statement on service reconfiguration, a list of trusts in attendance. A summary of August 2018 F1 programmes will be availlable on this webpage soon to download to rank in FPAS.   

A copy of 2018 STFS Prospectus is currently being updated and will be available shortly. All other materials for the 2018 Fair are in development and will be uploaded once available.

New for this year, we are having 3 sponsors come on board - MDU, Royal Navy and Wesleyan are returning as sponsors of this event and will be having exhibition space alongside the trusts. All visitors to the exhibition will be encouraged to visit them on their stand - a floor plan of the event will be able soon.
