MMI Assessors needed!

Each year the University of Bristol run a series of MMIs (Multiple Mini Interviews), interviewing 80 candidates per day - with two sessions of 20 in the morning and two session of 20 in the afternoon. There are two parallel streams being interviewed synchronously, with 10 stations in each stream, at 6 minutes per station (5 minutes for the task/question and 1 minute change over). There is one interviewer at each station asking a question or acting out a scenario and each has a score sheet and guidance on scoring. MMIs are the final stage of the admissions process and offers are made based on candidate's performance at MMIs. 

 

We are looking for colleagues from across the NHS to act as assessors at the MMIs, I am afraid that there is no payment as such for your time, but we, and the GMC, recognise the important role that medical student selection plays in shaping the future health service so, all asessors will receive a certificate of contribution, evidence which may be useful in appraisal, revalidation and job planning.

 

I am happy to be able to confirm that this cycle's Medical MMIs will again be held in the Anson Room, Richmond Building, Queens Road (Student's Union) on the following dates -  

 

Tues 21st, Weds 22nd, Thurs 23rd  November

 

Tues 5th, Weds 6th, Thurs 7th December 

 

Tues 13th, Weds 14th, Thurs 15th February 

 

Tues 20th, Weds 21st, Thurs 22nd February  

 

Tues 13th, Weds 14th, Thurs 15th March 

  

There are refreshments and a briefing upon arrival and a lunch voucher is provided for the Balloon Bar on the ground floor.

 

I am looking for assessors that are available for either a half day (full morning - 09:00-12:20  or full afternoon - 12:20-15:40) or the whole day - 09:00-15:40. 

 

If you would like to take part in this please email jo.bennett@bristol.ac.uk

RCGP: Planned Trainee ePortfolio works

As part of a programme of works, there will be a 4 hour service outage to the Trainee ePortfolio during the weekend of the 28th and 29th of May.

This is to allow us undertake changes to the firewalls.

This work is scheduled to start at 12 midnight on Saturday 28th May until 4am on the 29th (i.e. a 4 hour window).

A support system will be in place to ensure that the TeP comes back up correctly following the outage.

Given the timings we hope this will cause minimal disruption.

Reminder to Trainees and Trainers about OOH work and EWTR

When organising OOH shifts trainees are reminded about the European Working Time Regulations and need to be compliant with these. The main features are:

• a maximum average of 48 hours working time each week, measured over a reference period of 26 weeks for doctors
• a minimum of 11 hours continuous rest in 24 hours
• a minimum of 24 hours continuous rest in 7 days (or 48 hrs in 14 days)
• a minimum of a 20 minute break in work periods of over 6 hours
• for night workers, an average of no more than 8 hours work in 24 over the reference period.

More details can be found on NHS Employers page

It is the responsibility of trainees to let their practices know if they need to adjust their daytime practice working hours to be compliant eg if finishing an OOH shift at 11pm should not start work the following day until 10am. However trainees still need to do their usual 40 hour working week so if starting late will need to make up the time elsewhere in the week or at a later date. Hours worked can be averaged over a several month time period. This can be done in a number of ways and how trainees and practices choose to do this will be up to individuals to organise. Trainees need to remember that practices usually need at least a months notice and ideally 6 weeks or more to re-organise surgeries as most will have surgeries open for booking at least a month in advance so re-organising surgeries at short notice is very time consuming. If it is not possible or trainees do not wish to organise a late start then an evening OOH shift could be finished at 10pm as an alternative. If trainees plan to work an overnight shift these should only be booked for a Friday or Saturday night unless the trainee has arranged to take the following day off and if working on a Friday night they should ensure an adequate break between daytime work and starting an overnight shift.

GP Retainer Scheme

We are seeking to re-launch the Retainer Scheme for GPs in the Swindon CCG area and we are inviting applications from doctors who are interested in joining the scheme.

Applicants would be applying to work 2-4 sessions per week in a practice within the Swindon CCG area. We have identified practices across the Swindon area that have expressed an interest in hosting a doctor on the scheme.

Doctors will be employed by the practice and the salary will be negotiable with the employing practice.

The Retainer Scheme is designed for GPs who are registered on the Performers List and are able to work but have additional constraints on their availability and may need extra support in the workplace. This includes parents of young children, or children with illnesses or disabilities, doctors who themselves have illness or disability, or those who are carers for other family members. Also in this group are doctors whose co-parents travel or work abroad for a large proportion of time. Doctors on the Retainer Scheme are not allowed to do more than 6 sessions per week of medical work in total, and only a maximum of 4 of these can be in the host practice.

Application form available from jacqueline.pullin@southwest.hee.nhs.uk.

Please return to jacqueline.pullin@southwest.hee.nhs.uk by Friday, 25 March 2016.

Applicants should be available to start work within 3-6 months.

2016 update of the RCGP Curriculum

The RCGP reviews the GP curriculum each year and makes changes where appropriate in response to user feedback and to ensure the content is kept up-to-date.

We are not planning any significant changes in 2016, but we have submitted a number of minor changes to GMC through their ‘administrative change process’. Changes which can been submitted through this process are limited to specific types, including corrections, clarifications, updating resources and changes resulting from national initiatives mandated by GMC.

The changes we submitted have been approved by GMC for immediate implementation. All trainees in GP specialty training programmes should now follow the 2016 version of the curriculum, which is available on the RCGP website (curriculum statements page, and the online curriculum) and through the Trainee ePortfolio.

Most of the changes are very minor, such as typograhical corrections, amendments in response to changes in curriculum terminology, amendments to improve understanding, and updating information about resources.

End-of-Life Care module

The GMC asked us to review the curriculum in the light of the review of the Liverpool Care Pathway by the Leadership Alliance on the Care of Dying People (LACDP). As a result of this review we have made some changes to the End-of-Life Care module.

These changes place increased emphasis on providing individualised care, focused on the needs and wishes of dying people and their families. They do not add any additional requirements to training or assessments, but clarify and re-emphasise certain aspects.

You can see these changes in the track-change version, which shows the main amendments to the module:

Module 3.09 End-of-Life Care (track change) [PDF].

Information about the changes, along with the revised version of the curriculum, have been posted on the RCGP website

SWINDON NB HOT TOPICS COURSE

 Hot Topics GP Update Course

Tuesday 26th April 2016

NB Medical is delighted to be working with Swindon GP Education Trust to run a Hot Topics GP Update course on Tuesday 26th April 2016.

NOW AVAILABLE TO BOOK ONLINE THOUGH NB MEDICAL http://www.nbmedical.com/gp-course-access

You will need to input the suitable code (please see the below)

 

For 15 years NB Medical Education has been the market leader in running GP Update courses in the UK and Ireland, with over 10,000 GP’s attending our courses per year. We are passionate about primary care, and committed to helping busy primary care professionals practice evidence-based medicine in an easy, time efficient way.

Our teaching is focused on the patient, the problems they bring us and how best we can help them.

The "Hot Topics" course consists of a series of short ‘TED-style’ engaging presentations blending evidence and cases, followed by discussion which may have an impact on your practice. The course comes with a number of extra resources to give it incredible ‘added value’

  • A fully referenced book with recent summaries of the evidence for approximately 150 clinical Hot Topics commonly seen in primary care. Most of our delegates use this every day, like they use the BNF. All of the material is up to date and the material is completely 100% independent from any external influence.
  • 12 months access to the on-line electronic version of the book which is instantly searchable. All the original references and resources for GPs (e.g. links to on-line clinical calculators) and patients (e.g. patient information leaflets) are hyperlinked and just one click away.
  • NEW A CPD tracker with which you can track your CPD, including external CPD and your work with the book. At the end of the year with just one click it will collate all of this into a single pdf summary for your appraisal

Continuing Professional Development with NB Medical

Each delegate will be presented with a certificate of attendance awarding 6 CPD credits for attending the day. The

"Hot Topics" course is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners. On accrediting the course the RCGP assessor commented that:-

The Hot Topics GP update course is an excellent course with outstanding feedback from participants. The course is clearly designed with busy GPs in mind. The KISS summaries and Guide are an innovative idea to reinforce the course content and learning materials. It is good to note an emphasis on leadership, teaching, audit and commissioning in addition to relevant clinical topics.’

UWE Open Evening to showcase new Physician Associate Studies Programme.

The Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences at the University of the West of England are hosting an open evening to showcase our new Physician Associate Studies Programme. Physician Associates are a new healthcare professional who, while not a doctor, works to the medical model, with the attitudes, skills and knowledge base to deliver holistic care and treatment within the general medical and/or general practice team under defined levels of supervision.  This new programme will be part of the Allied Health Professions Department and will incorporate a primary care focus. The open evening will involve numerous speakers, who will review this emerging professional group and the potential for this role in the Primary Care setting. The evening will also include demonstrations of the teaching facilitates here at UWE, including the simulation wards, Virtual Environment in Radiotherapy suite, X-ray room, Radiotherapy Planning suite and Paediatric Suite. The evening will be an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues in Primary Care across the region. 


The welcome reception will take place on Wednesday 24th February 2016 from 18:00-20:00 at our Glenside Campus.

RSVP to jessica.coggins@uwe.ac.uk by Wednesday 10th February. Please state any dietary or access requirements in your response.

Junior International Committee

JIC is a subcommittee of the RCGP International Programme Board (IPB), formed in 2009. It has 16 volunteer AiT and First5 doctors as its core committee and a network of interested doctors who are kept in touch via social media and meetings. The aim of the JIC is to facilitate international educational opportunities, foster international partnerships and promote a global approach to primary care.
The JIC is also the UK branch of the Vasco da Gama Movement (VdGM). This is the WONCA Europe working group for new and future general practitioners. All UK based AiT and First5 GPs are automatically members of the VdGM and can access their activities.
There are many opportunities for young GPs to be involved with global health both in the UK and farther afield. Whether volunteering abroad or taking an 'Out of Programme Experience' (OOPE), coordinating international primary care research or completing a Hippokrates exchange with a practice abroad, the JIC is here to facilitate opportunity in the international community of family medicine.

 

The JIC core committee is made up of five working groups:

EXCHANGE
The exchange group co-ordinates observational clinical placements for outgoing UK junior doctors and incoming junior doctors from around the world. We arrange European two week Hippokrates and fully funded Erasmus exchanges, FM360 exchanges (beyond Europe exchanges) and global conference exchanges. This year a reciprocal ongoing exchange with Japanese junior doctors was organised for the third year running. The UK is the most popular place in Europe to undertake exchange and we have a huge network of regional co-ordinators and GP hosts who help to facilitate this programme.
exchangejic@gmail.com, leonardoexchange@gmail.com

 

RESEARCH
The Research group facilitates pan European research via the European research forum, helps to co-ordinate the VdGM junior researcher award and presents relevant international publications and research at domestic and international conferences. They are currently working on developing an audit and research toolkit for junior doctors undertaking out of programme experiences.
researchgroupjic@gmail.com

 

BEYOND EUROPE
The Beyond Europe group helps to develop new partnerships and sustain existing collaborations with our networks beyond Europe to support clinical, teaching and quality improvement work including Uganda and Japan. This group is also piloting a ‘twinning’ project which links a practice in the UK to a primary care hub in a lower/middle income country (London and Ghana) to develop long term information, knowledge and exchange collaboration.
beyondeuropejic@gmail.com

 

EDUCATION AND TRAINING
The Education and Training group aims to improve the recognition of time spent abroad as a valuable training experience and opportunity for reciprocal learning. They have been instrumental in creating the first ST4 global health post in the UK, implementing global health competencies in the UK curriculum and working towards institutional approval of study leave for exchanges.
educationandtrainingjic@gmail.com

 

IMAGE
The Image group co-ordinates the efforts of the JIC and promotes our work and affiliated opportunities. They lead JIC's contribution to the RCGP Annual Conference, the RCGP Global Health Conference and international Wonca conferences as well as maintaining the JIC website and communicating with our national and international networks through social media.

ST2+ GP trainees help required: Over The Wall camps for children with health challenges

More than two decades ago, Paul Newman had a vision: imagine if children living with serious illnesses had the chance to simply be children. To just have fun. So he started a camp where kids could, in his words, “raise a little hell.” Today, Paul’s legacy lives on in SeriousFun Children’s Network.

Over The Wall is part of this network; a UK charity who provides residential camps for children with serious illnesses, and their siblings in Scotland, the Midlands and Dorset. We give children one glorious week of experiences that are memorable, exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe environment.

To do this, we rely on doctors (ST2 and above in Paediatrics, GP or A&E with paediatric experience) like you to give up a week of your time, skills and experience and join our 'Beach Patrol' (medical team). In return, we can give you a week of fun, friendship and achievement, memories that will stay with you forever and people who will inspire you.

King's Fund GP Trainee Survey

Background to project:

There are numerous reports of a crisis in general practice but there’s no national data to explain what’s actually going on: How many more consultations are being done each week? Have the patients got more complicated?

The truth is, there's really no way of knowing at the moment. Despite the seemingly vast amounts of data that individual GP practices collect, there hasn’t been a systematic national data collection that can tell us about the number of consultations, who undertakes them or the nature of those consultations since 2008.

At The King’s Fund we’re running a project that will collect up-to-date and detailed evidence about the changes in activity in general practice in the past five years. We’re doing a combination of quantitative and qualitative research, including large-scale data analysis, fieldwork in four practices around the country and surveys.

We’re particularly keen to hear the views of GP trainees. Not only are you the next generation of GPs, but your experience of working across a number of practices will give you lots of insight into the issues we’re looking at.

For more information please contact the lead researcher Beccy Baird, Fellow in Health Policy, The King’s Fund or visit the Related blog 

 GPs we need YOUR help

GP's we would appreciate if you could complete the survey by clicking here

 

Thanks all,

Researchers on behalf of The Kings Fund

The aim of the scheme is to help develop their skills in leadership, management, strategy, project management and health policy.

Please see below of someones experience: 

"I am a GP ST3 seconded from the end of my training and am three months into this valuable year. The way things are going in our NHS I really believe that GPs - of all the specialties - need all the exposure to leadership and management experience they can get. No matter what you end up doing after the year, you will take a huge amount from this immersive experience, and meet some extraordinary people. The scheme provides doctors in training with the unique opportunity to spend one year working with the most senior executives in leading national healthcare-affiliated organisations to develop their skills in:

- Leadership
- Management
- Strategy
- Project Management
- Health Policy

Fellows are immersed at the centre of organisations such as NHS England, Health Education England, CQC, Bupa and medical royal colleges. I am seconded to the CQC which has been fascinating, as you can imagine! I am doing collaborative work on a national scale such
as with The King's Fund and NICE, in addition to writing for journals,and doing interesting internal work. Posts are based in London and the North of England. The scheme is sponsored by Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS England's National Medical Director and managed by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM)."

RCGP Bright Ideas

The Clinical Innovation and Research Centre at RCGP has recently launched the Bright Ideas Portal, where we can highlight examples of innovative work that is going on in GP practices. We want this work to be recognised, celebrated and shared, in the hope that GPs will both be inspired to take up practices which have been successful elsewhere and encouraged to come up with their own innovations.

Each month three Bright Ideas will be highlighted on our web page and also promoted in our Clinical News bulletin, which goes out monthly to RCGP members. In addition to this a Bright Idea will feature in our new member magazine, GP Frontline, to promote the innovation to our members and to hopefully inspire more GPs out there. The Bright Idea which was featured in the most recent edition of GP Frontline, Shared medical appointments, has already led to reports of increasing interest both from RCGP members and 13 CCGs.

We are asking that GPs or other members of the practice team send us a short piece of writing (up to 1000 words) setting out the practice’s experiences in adopting your Bright Idea and the benefits and learning that were the result. Images and links to webpages and journal articles which provide more background information are also encouraged. We also ask that you promote this as much as possible to your networks in order to raise awareness of the innovations on the page.

If you have any examples of innovations or queries regarding the programme then please email.

UK Medical Education Database

The Medical Schools Council, the General Medical Council and other key interest groups are piloting a UK Medical Education Database (UKMED) which, for the first time, brings together undergraduate and postgraduate medical education data. It provides a platform for collating data on the performance of UK medical students and trainee doctors across their education and future career. These data have not been linked before and no single organisation can currently link all data on their own.

The project allows researchers to submit proposals and, subject to meeting acceptance criteria, gain access to specific data for analysis. By linking data such as assessment results, UKMED aims to highlight the paths of doctors through school, university and their career. This creates a unique environment in which new research can be undertaken in a broad range of areas to inform the development of medical education and assessment, and the future medical workforce with the ultimate aim of improving patient care. The scope of the research that can be undertaken through UKMED is potentially broad ranging from analyses of selection tests in predicting future performance, to studying how socioeconomic background might affect an applicant’s progression through their career.

Applications for access to UKMED data for research purposes are welcome, with the deadline for submission on 11 January 2016 12:00 noon GMT. The project is a pilot which will be evaluated in mid-2016.

Please share this message within your organisation and research networks. For more information, please visit the UKMED website

Kind regards

Opportunity for an Educational Supervisor

The National GP Recruitment Office needs a case writer to develop questions for the Situational Judgment Test and the Clinical Problem Solving aspects of the GP recruitment process.

John Scanlon the current Severn case writer is stepping down. He writes:

'I joined this group when Bill Irish sent an ad looking for writers.

The commitment is 3 days a year ( 2+1) for meetings in a nice hotel and the time spent writing. The days pay £400 each + travel (additional supplement for the 2 day residential). There is a kitty of £2000 to pay for the individual time spent writing, again £400 a day which is reasonable.The group are really a great bunch.

The cases are written to a specific formula for the NRO and include SJTs and CPS items.

Helen Rochester is rep for Devon/Cornwall and I did discuss this with Phil Grimmer because I think it is too nice a niche to leave unfilled.'

I would be happy to speak/email anyone interested’

Cycling on the job

With the great British summer we are having, what better way to get around than by bike? It is sustainable, healthy and economical. Dr Annie Elkins, our ST3 sustainability scholar in 2011/12 would agree. 

Did you know GP trainees employed by Gloucester Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (the host employer) can claim 10p per mile for cycling to undertake GP home visits and other work-related activity?   As with usual expenses, claims need to be:

 

  • Fully itemised i.e. Including to and from details, total mileage, and dates of claim
  • Made within 3 months of the activity
  • For work-related activity only
  • Signed off by an authorised approver 

Don’t have a bike?  You may be able to apply for one on the cycle to work scheme.  Gloucester Hospitals are members of the cycle to work scheme.  Now that GP trainees are employed by them you can sign up to get a bike! There is no waiting period to be able to apply; however you need to have a contract which has at least 12 months remaining to cover the contract term. 

All staff of Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who have a permanent contract of employment with the Trust, or a fixed term/temporary contract which is due to last at least 12 months from the date of joining the scheme are eligible.  In addition, staff must be earning enough to ensure that the salary sacrifice does not take their hourly rate of pay below the National Minimum Wage (it may be possible to avoid this happening by extending the ‘hire period’ from 12 months to 18 or 24 months).  The Trust will check all this when you apply to join the scheme. 

If you leave the employment of the Trust during the 12 month hire period, the outstanding repayment will not be through salary sacrifice, and you will not benefit from savings in tax, National Insurance etc. 

Sound like something you want to consider?  Contact Richard Giles for more information.

Public Health Specialty Training - Recruitment 2011

The South West offers fantastic opportunities to train as a specialist in public health, in one of the UK’s most popular regions to live and work in.  

Applications for the 2011 recruitment are expected to open from December 2010

Recruitment for public health is managed nationally with applicants making a single application with expressed preference for specific programmes and geographical zones. Assessment and selection is standardised across several centres in the UK. The public health specialty training programme selection process uses evidence based and validated selection methodology.

We recruit into the programme annually, in line with national guidance and requirements. Our programme is open to candidates from medical and non-medical backgrounds according to nationally agreed eligibility criteria. Queries regarding recruitment to the South West programme should be directed to the Programme Director, Dr Chris Hine, through the Programme Co-ordinator  beth.carpenter@bristol.nhs.uk

2011 Recruitment details

Recruitment into PH in England and Wales follows a nationally standardised process which is being administered through East Midlands deanery with input from the Severn Deanery.

National specialty training information for all specialties can be accessed through the MMC Specialty Training pages . Please be certain that you are reading the correct version of these pages as relevant to the 2010/11 round of appointments

Potential applicants are encouraged to read the guidance on immigration issues on the MMC Overseas Applicants pages.

Vacancies in the 2011 recruitment round will be advertised nationally (BMJ, HSJ) with applications expected to open in December 2010. Details will also be available on the Faculty of Public Health website http://www.fph.org.uk/. Interested applicants are advised to watch the FPH website for regularly updated details for the application round.

The expected start date for successful applicants is August 2011.

The anticipated outline of and timetable for the application process is given below

  • Advertisement: November 19th
  • Electronic applications will open for registration from November 19th
  • On line application systems open from 3rd December 2010. Applications close December 20th
  • Applicants successful at long listing (eligibility testing) will be invited to a full day assessment centre (written tests of numerical and critical reasoning and a situational judgement [scenario based] test) w/b 24th January 2011. Assessment centres will be held in a number (probably three) locations around the country.
  • Applicants will need to reach a minimum standard at the tests of numeracy and critical reasoning. Applicants passing this standard will then be ranked according to their scores.
  • Applicants at the top end of the ranking for written tests will be invited to a half day selection centre (face to face assessment) during the period 28th February – 2nd March

In 2011 a single national selection centre will be held in the West Midlands, probably in Birmingham. Every effort will be made to identify a location with good public transport facilities.

Applicants will make a single electronic application and will be required to state, in preference order, their deaneries, or where relevant sub programmes, of choice. Offers to applicants meeting the minimum required standards at interview will be made according to the final ranking scores in line with expressed preferences until all spaces are filled in all programmes. Applicants are advised to think carefully about preferencing. Final scores take account of written test scores as well as interview scores.
