You should enjoy the experience and the
close educational relationship with the trainer
It should be good fun and you are part of the
team. However you might find it isolating and
lonely to consult on your own to begin with.
Make sure you have your trainers mobile
phone number.
Sort out any potential timetable/placement
issues right at the beginning of your
placement



The trainer should allow you to grow in
confidence and independence in the time you
are there so naturally you are protected to
begin with.
If things not going well talk to someone.
You are supernumerary and so its expected
that the practice should not depend on you
being there ,so holidays should not be as
much of a headache.



You are entitled to study leave. This includes
VTS half days but also a week per 6 months.
With the trainers agreement you could take
more but that is not an entitlement.
Days off for personal study will not be
approved but of course attendances at
relevant exams will be allowed.





Equipment you are provided with include the
black bag but I would expect people to have own
stethoscopes and buy own opthalmoscopes and
otoscopes.
Otherwise the practice should provide you with
them.
Contents of doctors bag should be one of the
first things you sort in induction period.
If things get busy from time to time that is not
necessarily a problem but you should not be left
without a practitioner in the building.
Practice meetings are important to understand
general practice and its vital to attend these



You must regularly look at the News section
of the Pennine website.
You must join and use the Pennine Yahoo
Group
Review the Deanery website to become
familiar with their expectations for successful
ARCP progression




Home visits up to 3 a day often less
Be safe, be prepared know where you are
going and whom you are meeting.
Often reason for visit will lend itself to a pre
tailored action plan.

You need to have minimum numbers of
assessments done before the summative reviews
by the ES (May & Nov).
Get your trainer to look at your portfolio,
regularly checking your entries and validating
them against the competencies
When you were in hospital practice consultants
were rating you as competent but in general
practice you will usually be in the needs further
development category and don’t be upset by this!
DOPS need to be done on real patients and
observed by an appropriate health professional
