The information is not available in the format requested. There was one doctor in their first year of the foundation programme (also known as the position of house officer, which is currently being phased out) at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals National Health Service Foundation Trust as at 30 September 2006. This compares with 17 doctors that were still in training at the foundation trust.

The numbers of doctors that the NHS requires to be recruited each year is a matter for determination by local NHS organisations, as they are best placed to assess the health needs of their local health community.
