Withdrawal of Specialty Locum Appointment for Training (LAT) posts in England

15th January 2016

In 2014 Health Education England formed a working group to explore the use of LAT posts in England. The group made a recommendation that LAT appointments should cease in England from 2016.

Following this recommendation, Health Education England created a Task and Finish Group to implement withdrawal of LAT appointments in 2016. This letter confirms that LAT appointments will cease from 1 January 2016 in England. Existing LAT training offers made in 2015 will continue until cessation of initial appointment.
