Foundation School Bulletin

Information Bulletin – 30/01/2019

This is your weekly information bulletin for the Severn Foundation School. The content of these bulletins will be local and national courses and information relevant to foundation trainees which will vary from week to week. If you would like to contribute to the bulletin please contact

F2 Regional Teaching

All F2 trainees must do a minimum of 4 Regional Teaching Days, 2 of which have to be both Clinical Skills and Human Factors. To find out what other Regional Teaching courses are available to you, please click here to access our MaxCourse Regional Teaching Booking System.

We encourage you to book onto this exciting, new course; Foundation Teaching Skills - Train the Trainers #CPRinSchools. This training day will provide participants with basic level knowledge and skills in designing and delivering short skills acquisition training sessions. It will give you the ability to provide short skill based teaching sessions to colleagues and other healthcare professionals, it also provides an understanding of how to deliver CPR training so that Foundation level postgraduate medical trainees can deliver training sessions on this technique to non healthcare participants.

This course will count towards one of your four compulsory regional teaching days.


Medico-Legal Training Day

The Medico-Legal Training Day is a new course which has recently been added to the F2 Regional Teaching Programme. The day is being run by executives from Irwin Mitchell LLP and will be an introduction into medico-legal issues including consent, record keeping and rehabilitation signposting. 
The session will be followed by a free lunch offering you the opportunity to raise further questions and issues directly with the speakers, and to network with your colleagues.

Location: Musgrove Park Academy, Taunton - Somerset

Date & Time: Thursday 28 February 2019, 09:30 to 13:00

Free lunch included!

F1-2 transition survey

If you are a current F2, please find below the link to a survey which has been developed by trainees within Severn, and which aims to find out the views of current trainees about the transition from F1-2. The purpose of this survey is to find out if/where there are gaps in support, and how trainees can be better supported during this transition. 

The survey is confidential, and your response is very important as it will help shape the additional resources which can be put in place to help foundation doctors; so please answer honestly. There is also an option to leave your email address at the end - this would solely be used to contact you if you are happy to participate in a focus group about this topic.

Thank you for your response, and your help in supporting foundation doctors.
