Le Tour Legacy

wp_20140903_005A big thank you to everyone who turned up today for the team building on the Pennine Trail.  It was definetely a good way to get to know some of you new (and older) trainees better and it definetely beat being on the wards or stuck in Surgery.  The photos have been uploaded to the gallery – that shade of pink really suits you Chris!  Finally, thank you very much Helen for arranging and organising the afternoon.




GMS contract 2014/15

The General Medical Services (GMS) contract for 2014/15 has now been published.  This contains all the relevant guidance about the new contract changes agreed between the Government and GPs.  For those of you in General Practice over the next year you may well come across concepts such as the “Named GPs for over 75s” and Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) changes.

Trainee Trajectory for GP Trainees

Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber have produced an extremely useful document (Trainee Trajectory) which charts what it is you should be doing during the three years you spend as a GP trainee.  We realise when you first start that being aware of when it is you should be doing the various Work Based Placed Assessments (WBPAs) etc can be difficult – I think this document summarises it well.

One day conference: Practice Management

A big thank you to everybody who made today’s conference so enjoyable.  There was a real buzz and it was good to see and hear trainees getting involved with the different scenarios.  Hopefully you now appreciate the joy of agreeing annual leave between colleagues, sorting out planning for the impending Winter crisis and can balance the books of the Practice where you work!  Special thanks and mention to Dr Pete Lane who organised and ran today’s conference.  Pics are now up on the Gallery page.
