South Thames Deanery Map

Foundation Programme (FP)

South Thames includes hospitals in southern London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. South Thames is part of London and KSS (Kent, Surrey and Sussex) Foundation Schools Health Education England.

South Thames is divided into five groups (full group details can be found in the South Thames Foundation School prospectus):

  1. Coast and Country (2 years in Kent, Surrey and East/West Sussex)
  2. Continuity (2 years in the same hospital, trust or geographically close trusts)
  3. London Link 1 (1 London year and 1 Western South Thames year)
  4. London Link 2 (1 London year and 1 Central South Thames year)
  5. London Link 3 (1 London year and 1 Eastern South Thames year). 

Academic Foundation Programme (AFP)

South Thames does not have a separate Academic Foundation Programme but it is shared with North Central and East London and North West London. Instead, an application is made to ‘LaKSS’ managed by London and KSS Foundation Schools Health Education England.

Applicants complete a 4-month academic post in their F2 year.
