Foundation schools are not bricks and mortar institutions. They are a conceptual group of institutions that bring together medical schools, the local deanery, trusts (acute, mental health and PCTs) and other organisations such as hospices. They aim to offer training to foundation doctors in a range of different settings and clinical environments. The schools are administered by a central local staff which is supported by the deanery.
The schools deliver training according to national guidance developed by the UKFPO. There are local variations in some areas.
