Your placement with the surgery will usually last 4 months. You will be expected to work at both our main surgery and our Branch Surgery at Sandal.
Your employment will be managed by Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Medical Staffing Department so we do not require any documentation. We do however need a few pieces of information before you start your placement;
– Smartcard Number
– Car Registration Number
The terms of your contract state that you must have suitable transport to enable you to carry out your duties.
You must also maintain an effective current driving licence.
It is essential that you inform your car insurance provider that you will be using the vehicle for business purposes to ensure that your car is covered. This also enables you to claim business mileage.
You will be required to provide your own stethoscope and a doctor’s bag however the practice will provide you with a loan of other items that may be required for the period you are with us. We expect all items loaned to be returned in good condition prior to the end of your time with us.
You will be given your timetable prior to your first week at the surgery. We ask that you let us know of any prior arrangements/holiday leave/study leave at the earliest convenience to allow us to amend timetables and surgery rotas.
You will hold surgeries at both of our sites.
Initially you will have 30 minute appointments. This will be reduced over time to eventually conform to our 10 minute appointment time. This will only be done with your prior agreement.
There will always be a doctor available to support you should you need it throughout your surgery.
A list of home visits will be compiled throughout the morning, mainly by our triage team. This will be available by the end of your morning surgery.

You will be not be expected to be on call. You may however shadow an On-Call Doctor should you wish to do so and your surgery timetable allows.
You will have an appointed tutorial session each week where your tutor or a suitable alternative will provide a training/educational session. The times and subject of these sessions will be discussed with your tutor when you start.
