Arrangements from September 2017

1pm - 3.15pm Trainees in practice

3.30-5pm Trainees in hospital join group.

 

We run an education programme on Wednesday afternoon’s from 13:00 to 17:00. This will run for 30 weeks of the year split into three terms. You are expected to attend every week for the whole afternoon during your general practice attachments, although we do allow you to have the occasional holiday!! Your average attendance should be 90% and a record is kept of this because we have to send the Deanery attendance figures on a regular basis.

 

In addition a lunch club will run on teaching days between 12:00 to 13:00.The focus will be on working towards improved communication skills and understanding NHS culture for those who have trained outside the U.K.

All trainees are welcome to attend. If you would like to come along please email Jane Hill.

 

The first part of afternoon (1-3) will primarily for those trainees in general practice attachments .Initially the focus will be on clinical skills/communication skills but as the year progresses we expect the sessions to take the form of small group work based on case discussions and be trainee led.

 

The second afternoon session is from 15:00 to 17:00. This  session is for all registrars attached to the scheme. During your hospital posts, you are expected to attend most of the afternoon sessions; attendance at less than 70% will sometimes lead to an assessment of unsatisfactory progress in your Educational Supervision Review.  If you have any problems in attending, please let Claire know. It can be difficult for some departments to release all trainees, and EWTD also gets in the way, but we do try to facilitate attendance where we can by speaking with departments on your behalf.

 

There is a set programme for the afternoon sessions which is based on the GP curriculum developed by the Royal College of General Practitioners. This curriculum forms the basis of the MRCGP, which is the assessment procedure for all GP registrars introduced from August 2007. We recognise the value of the new curriculum as a foundation for general practice training. However, it would be impossible for the VTS day release programme to effectively cover all aspects of the curriculum, even in 3 years. So, we aim to cover the areas that we feel probably won’t be covered elsewhere and would encourage you to regard the day release programme as part of your overall learning rather than the complete learning experience. We would also encourage you all to become very familiar with the GP curriculum itself so that you can assess your own progress and learning.

The timetable for teaching will be available on the GPST website.

 

Registrars who are not on leave are expected to be working in the hospital or their practice if there is not a VTS session. If you are unable to attend the VTS session for any reason, please ring or email Claire at the Education Centre with your apologies (Claire.hunt@ipswichhospital.nhs.uk 01473702502)

It would also be helpful to copy the course organisers in on your email.

 

We do ask you to complete a feedback form at the end of every VTS session. These aren’t perfect but they do help us to see how well the afternoon has gone and is a chance for you to let us know about areas that you would like covered in the future. Thank you for taking the time to complete these. Each week, these are amalgamated and an anonymous summary is reviewed by the programme directors

 

All sessions are held at the post graduate centre at Ipswich hospital, except for a few specific sessions which will be highlighted on the timetable on the website.  Parking can be a challenge…..so please leave plenty of time to find a parking space.
