JUNIOR DOCTORS MESS

UHL Doctors Mess is an organisation run for junior doctors, by junior doctors!

We have a common room in each of the three sites – Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General Hospital and Glenfield Hospital – exclusively for members! Our mess common rooms are equipped with flatscreen TVs with Sky, NHS computers, kitchen facilities, food, drink and more! We have free food delivered regularly and are starting Payday Pizza – watch this space!

We organise a variety of monthly payday socials free for members. Big events not to be missed are our annual Christmas and Summer Balls. These are advertised via our Facebook group: “UHL Doctors Mess”

Members get all this for £10 a month – one the cheapest in the UK! For your convenience, new starters are automatically members unless they ask Payroll to be removed. See any committee member for further details and if have any queries, get in touch with us by e-mail: uhldoctorsmess@gmail.com

Doctors in Training Committee

UHL has a very active Doctors in Training Committee (DiTC). The remit of the committee is to act on the best interests of the junior doctor body and has an influence throughout the Trust. The committee is formed of junior doctors (mix of grades and specialties), representatives from Department of Clinical Education and HR.

Induction

Every junior doctor must attend a Corporate Induction if they have not worked within the Trust for more than 12 months. Every trainee, regardless of when they last worked at UHL, should receive a local induction within your department area. All trainees are expected to keep up-to-date with their statutory and mandatory training.

GRIPES

Junior doctors: Is something bugging you? Have you got ideas about improving patitent safety. Let us know – visit INsite and search for the ‘Gripes Reporting Tool’. This tool does not replace the Datix system. If an adverse event or near miss occurs, a Datix report must be filed simultaneously.
