20 OOH Training ‘…the generalist role of the GP should be maintained and that newly accredited GPs will be expected to have demonstrated their ability to perform competently in OOH primary care’OOH Training for GP Speciality Registrars, Position Paper COGPED 2007
21 Why does a GPST require to have an experience in OOH Out of Hours experience is viewed by the Deanery, and the RCGP, as an important and necessary educational component of the GP Specialty training year. The skills developed in this are part of the competences that will need to be present in order for your trainer to sign the Trainer’s report.
22 Health & Social Care Act 2012 “The role of GP’s has changed – now both providers and clinical commissioners responsible for population health”“Clinical Commissioning about Patients not about GPs”“General Practice has changed – both in-hours and out of hours”“The Urgent Care Landscape has changed”“Biggest change NHS management programme ever”“Just being a GP/Doctor is not enough” – “Strategic Challenge”Understanding the wider urgent care system a key COMPETENCY
23 What are Out of Hour Sessions? These are sessions where you shadow a GP providing medical care or telephone triage and advice. According to your experience and confidence you will be either seeing patients yourself or sitting in with the GPs consulting. You will always be supervised and supported even during telephone consultations where you will have adequate training.
24 Out of Hours for Pennine GPST’s Out of hours is a mandatory component of GPST training and you must demonstrate competence to your educational supervisor to allow a CCT to be issued. OOH is defined as work undertaken between and 0800 Monday to Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
25 Why do I have to do these? Simple answer: It’s a training requirement. But it’s much more than that, as a Trained GP you will be providing Out of Hours services in some capacity or the other. They are an excellent training tool, as you learn in a supervised environment to identify learning needs and put your skills into practice.Also when you have qualified, the experience gained is invaluable as Out of Hours sessions are a good way to supplement your income.
26 In addition:You don’t get paid extra for doing these sessions as a trainee, but you can claim for the mileage incurred travelling from your home address to the base station and back on a public transport rate (23 pence a mile – see further guidance on mileage claims guidance in 2009-pennine GPVTS website ).Of course you are human and like most doctors you may not be particularly enamoured with doing on-call. However you are paid a significant uplift in your salary for on-call and so cannot opt out. You must do out of hours to complete your work place based assessments for the MRCGP.
27 Moreover… •Need for future GP to be fit for purpose High profile cases and reviews of OOHs•Need for future GP to be fit for purpose•COMPETENT and CONFIDENT•Reviewed – November 2010•It is mandatory that GP ST2/3 maintain a portfolio of evidence of achieved competencies and experience
28 OOH Educational Supervision This is the responsibility of your practice GP Trainer who will undertake overall supervision and management of your out of hours experience. You will need to provide your Trainer with portfolio evidence and formative feedback from your Clinical Supervisor(s) at your OOH provider. We would recommend you do this using the 'Record Of Out Of Hours Session' form as well as the out of hours session learning Log entry in your e-Portfolio under curriculum statement 7, Care of acutely ill People
29 OOH Clinical Supervision Clinical Supervisors in OOH will complete a record of the session, using the OOH session record sheet, which the GPST must share with the Trainer as evidence of attendance. GPSTs may choose to use an OOH encounter to submit for formal case-based discussion
30 Documenting OOH experience in the e-portfolio GPSTs should record each of their OOH sessions in their e-portfolio. Each entry has to be tagged before filing against at least one curriculum statement heading. Normally in the case of an OOH session this would be curriculum statement 7: Care of Acutely Ill People. All OOH sessions entered into the e-portfolio must be ‘shared’ with the Trainer who may choose to ‘validate’ some of these as contributing to workplace-based assessment. In this case, the entry will also be tagged against one of the twelve professional competency areas.
31 At the end of the training programme, the Trainer will search for all OOH sessions in the ‘shared entries’ in the e-portfolio (there is a filter facility for this) ensuring that the requisite number have been completed. A declaration is then completed which will appear in the ‘progress to CCT’ section of the e-portfolio.
32 How many sessions do I have to do? an ST3 needs to do 72 hours of OOH activity (minimum 12 sessions)The minimum total amount of documented GP OOH activity for a ST1/2 in a 6 month WTE GP Post is 36 hours (minimum 6 sessions)
33 OUT OF HOURS EXPECTATIONS – Deanery Guidance The number and frequency of OOH sessions to be completed whilst working in a training practice is defined in Form B for each post. This is usually, but not always, at least one session in a 4 week period.Leaving this until later might reduce your opportunities to complete a sufficient number of sessions toward the end of your post and create problems when an ARCP panel assesses your portfolio.Complete approximately 1 session per month of GP placement of out of hours care with a clinical supervisor at GTD during your 3 years on the scheme (most GPSTs will have to do between 14 and 18 sessions in total).
34 Types of OOH sessionsGPST needs to cover all aspects of OOH care i.e. Telephone triage, emergency clinic sessions and home visiting.
35 THE GTD PATIENT PATHWAY Type of Shift (Triage, Treatment centre, Mobile)
36 There needs to be an appropriate balance between telephone consultations and face to face consultations in your out of hours experience. As a guide it might be considered that between a third of your out of hours sessions should focus on telephone consulting. This might vary depending on how much telephone consulting is experienced in the practice in normal hours and the rate of competency progression.
37 Finally you should remember that some out of hours centres and some sessions tend to be busier than others. It may be the case that in order to demonstrate all the required competencies you might need to do more sessions than those specified in form B or more daytime "on call" activity
38 What about LTFT trainees? As for LTFTTs – yes they do the same number of sessions as FT - but pro rata over a longer time scale. So if they are working at 50% WTE they would do their nominal 6 sessions over a year.
39 What are the different types of sessions and what can I expect in these? As mentioned, there can be PCC, Mobile ( Home visits) or Telephone triage sessions. There are generally ample opportunities to discuss the cases with the trainers.
40 Primary Care CentreSitting in surgeries or consulting under supervision, you can expect to see almost anythingIts important to not forget that although they are usually not that complicated, there is no hard and fast rule. The trick is to develop the skills to deal with these safely.These cases may be given medication, referred to specialties or A&E or even given a review appointments.
41 Home Visits:It is best to arrive 10 minutes early at the base and go up to the Team leader and introduce yourself. They will direct you to your trainer and help you settle in. Then you set off with your trainer in a driven 4x4 / Car to do the home visits. You may be doing 6-7 visits in a 6 hour session but the time is mainly taken in travelling ‘far and wide’. You will learn how to do home visits quickly and safely in an OOH setting with limited information.The patients can be given advice +/- meds, prescriptions or admitted to hospitals as needed. You will be expected to input the data on the laptop (extra ‘Brownie points’ for doing it while the car is on the move – saves time).
42 Telephone Triage:After having an induction session to the IT system, getting your Smart Card set up and the operating software ( Adastra), you may be ‘sitting in’ for the first session or two just listening to the GPs consult, but eventually you will be consulting and GPs will listen in (on the second headset or speaker phone), and will guide you through the process to a point where you will consult independently.You will be expected to consult safely, seek help when unsure and input data. The best advice I received was to actually pay attention during the listening in sessions, as this is a great opportunity to learn! Safety netting is ever more important in these sessions.
43 What should I take with me? Mobile kit and Doctors bagAlready providedBe comfortable with its useFamiliarise yourself with prescribing in general at OOHPlease take the OOH record paperwork, fill these in as you go along and get your trainer to fill in their feedback and suggestions.

50 Standards for OOHs Care National Out of Hours Quality Requirements (13)•Initially Dec 2004•Revised July 2006 (no changes)•For ALL Out of Hours providers
51 National Quality Requirements One: performance reporting to PCT monthlyTwo: Report OOH consultations to patient’s own GP practice by 08:00 next working dayThree: Regular exchange of up-to-date information about patients with predefined needs e.g. Palliative careFour: Clinical audit of all who provide clinical service – (RCGP OOHs Clinical Audit Toolkit)(Urgent & Emergency Care Audit Toolkit 2011)
52 National Quality Requirements Five: Regular audit of patients’ experience of the serviceSix: Complaints procedureSeven: Capacity and contingency planningEight: Telephone answering requirementsWithin 60s including a recorded messageNine: Telephone Clinical Assessment30s, 20min, 60min
53 National Quality Requirements Ten: Face-to-face Clinical Assessment (walk ins)Eleven: Patients must be treated by clinician best equipped to meet their particular needsTwelve: Face-to-face consultations(Emer – 1hr / Urgent – 2hrs / Routine – 6hrs)Thirteen: Providing services for people with language difficulties, impaired hearing or impaired sight
54 When should I start doing them? It’s generally advisable to start them fairly early in your GP placements. Leaving them for later will mean there won’t be an even spread and you won’t be able to show a good progression in your skills. Also with the CSA and other hurdles you may struggle to fit it all in. Also it might be difficult to get all the session slots including telephone triage sessions completed before the final ARCP deadline.
55 How should I log these in? Best to take the paper version of the document with you (link given) and when logging it in as an OOH session can upload the scan. Otherwise if there is time and you have access to a computer it can be done directly onto the e-portfolio with the supervisor, but there is no room for the supervisor feedback.
56 What do I do when I have finished the requisite number? Your educational supervisor will sign you off in your E-portfolio for the OOH sessions once you have completed the minimum number AND demonstrated all the OOH competencies (this may take more than the minimum number of OOH sessions). This should be no later than your final educational supervision meeting.
57 What if I want to cancel or if don’t turn up? Try to attend the sessions, as they will have been confirmed to the OOH care provider. Inform your Supervisor directly, especially if there is short notice and contact rota master well in time if you want to cancel so that the slot can be offered to others.If the GPST doesn’t turn up for the session, it should be communicated by the supervisor to the Programme Directors.
58 What if I have questions? There are a lot of people to ask. Ask your colleagues especially ‘Older ST3s’, Supervisors, your Trainer and Programme Directors etc.Contact me:(text only please)
59 RequirementsFull time registrars must attend 12 OOH sessions during their GPR yearThe duration and frequency of these sessions may vary but normally a 4-6hr session is appropriate.Trainees should maintain a log of all Out of Hours sessionsIn order for registrars to gain a full range of OOH experience it is important that they book a range of OOH sessions
60 Other points to consider: GPSTs should regularly discuss their out of hours e-portfolio entries with their trainers and get them to sign off their competencies.Remember it is your responsibility to sort out your OOH sessions!It will be the responsibility of the Educational Supervisor to determine if the criteria for OOH work have been met and ‘sign off’ this section at the final educational supervision meeting

62 CompetenciesThere are 6 generic competencies within the RCGP Curriculum section on “Care of Acutely Ill People” and registrars are expected to have demonstrated competence in each of these before your final review.
63 1. Ability to manage common medical, surgical and psychiatric emergencies in the out-of-hours settingEven caring for large numbers at gtd, no registrar will ever see every possible emergency. The training process must address this knowledge base theoretically, whatever the registrar’s OOH experience.2. Understanding the organisational aspects of out of hours care A variety of experiences will help equip the registrar to function in any future situation3. Ability to make appropriate referrals to hospitals and other professionals in the out-of-hours setting4. Demonstration of communication skills required for out of hours care OOH care requires specific communication competencies eg. use of telephone consultations, operating with a lack of medical records, communicating with other doctors.5. Individual personal time and stress managementThis is best accomplished by reflection on direct experience6. Maintenance of personal security and awareness and management of the security risks to others

68 History of Telephone Triage From French – Trier (v. To Separate/Sort/Sift)Prioritising patients based on severity of conditionPioneered by French Military Surgeons during WWI
69 Telephone Invented by Alexander Graeme Bell First call: 10th March 1876“Mr Watson – Come here – I want to see you”First request for medical assistance!
70 Purpose of Telephone Triage Identify Immediately Life Threatening ConditionsProvide adviceEstablish need for face-to-face consultationEstablish venue for face-to-face consultationFacilitate access to other healthcare providersIt is in fact a consultationManage workload/workflow“Other”
71 What are the components of a good telephone consultation? A phone consult should allow a patient to tell the doctor what is wrong, it should include using a process to collect the relevant information to allow the doctor to come to a view of a differential, and should end with the patient being appropriately managed and knowing what to do next, and whenWhat are the components?
72 Scenario (1) It’s Saturday afternoon You are the mother of a 3 year old child.Your daughter was sniffly yesterday, but was able to attend playgroup. On returning home, she had a bit of a temperature and didn’t eat her tea. You gave her calpol and she settled well.This morning she was hot, distressed and holding her right ear. You have given some more calpol to little effect, and you are worried she might have an ear infection.
73 Scenario (2) It’s Tuesday evening You are the son of an 83 year old man, who lives alone.For the past few weeks he has been forgetful at times, and unsteady on his feet.He suffers from Hypertension, and only takes Bendroflumethiazide and a Multivitamin.He is fiercely independent, and has refused any offer of home help.On visiting tonight, you are concerned that he is really quite confused and unable to care for himself. He has been sick a couple of times, and incontinent of urine.
74 Scenario (3) It’s 7pm on Friday evening You are a 26 year old unemployed man with a history of drug abuse, currently clean and stable on 30mg Methadone and 10mg Diazepam 3 x daily.You have come down from Kent to Ashton to see a friend for the weekend.On getting off the coach it appears that someone has walked off with your bag, and your medication with it. All you have left is your wallet, mobile phone, and the clothes on your back. You have reported the theft to the police, who suggested you call the OOH doctors.
85 You can then access Rotamaster using your Rotamaster User Name and Password
86 This will bring you onto the Rotamaster Home Page
87 To look for shifts you have to click on ‘click here for Registrar shifts, you will then need to check your Rota daily as all confirmed shifts will appear on here.
88 You can then see the available shifts which are available by base by clicking on each base tab
89 a. If the shift is still available This then brings up any shifts which are available; to apply just tick in the box and press send, The automatically goes to Louise Ayres who will then see:a. If the shift is still availableb. If the doctor is OK to accept you on his shift.Just because you have applied for the shift, it does not guarantee you will get itContact Details:Louise AyresDirect Line:Main Office:
90 GTD Registrar Shifts At the moment we have 37 working trainers. As we are an OOH provider the available shifts are:Weekday evening, weekend afternoons and eveningsList of Treatment Centres available in your information pack with address, telephone numbers etcShifts which have limited availability are:Weekend morning shifts including Bank holidays – this shift can be extremely busy and we do not want to compromise the service.On call shifts – the doctor only comes in at the last minute if another doctor cancels through sickness so he may not work the shift at allWeekday afternoonsOvernight shifts
91 Cancelled ShiftsWe do have a cancellation policy for the doctors which states they must give 4 weeks notice which is adhered to except in certain circumstances, i.e. sickness, family emergenciesThe replacement doctor is not always a trainer so in this instance, the shift will have to be cancelled and you will be notified by or a telephone callIf we do have to cancel a shift, we will endeavour to give you plenty of warning and will try and offer you an alternative shift if possible, but this may not always be on the same day
92 CommunicationConfirmation of all shifts whether confirmed or declined will now be sent out to all registrarsIf the shift is declined an explanation can be obtained if necessary. Usually a shift has been declined as more than one registrar has applied for the shift.This should then make it clearer which shifts you are working. A weekly reminder of all shifts is also sent.By logging into rota master you will be able to also view your allocated shiftsOnce a month you will receive notification of the available shifts for the next
93 Frustrations Shift Cancellations If you (the registrar) has to cancel a shift, please give at least 48 hours notice so the doctor can be informed and maybe the shift could be filled by another registrar.Issues / queriesPlease ring if you have any issues so we can help – between 08:00-16:00 Mon-FriPlease contact us with any problems and we will try to resolve these straight away.
