Special Circumstances

If you need to be in a geographical area for specific caring or health reasons to undertake your Foundation Programme training, you can apply to your medical school to be considered for pre-allocation to a specific foundation school on the grounds of special circumstances.

The process and application forms can be found on the UKFPO website. You can only apply for special circumstances based purely on your current situation.

For the London Foundation School policy regarding to the allocation of programmes following the approval of Special Circumstances please refer to the individual School pages
