NON-TRAINING GRADE DOCTORS
Induction is an integral part of your introduction into the workplace and is something UHL take very seriously. All locally employed doctors will be provided with an induction and if you are new to the NHS we will be provide you with a two week supernumerary period. During this period you will shadow another doctor, familiarise yourself with the department and not partake in nights or on-call rotas.
UHL supports all of our locally employed doctors with a Horus ePortfolio. We appreciate that whilst the Horus ePortfolio provides a space to record educational activities some doctors may wish to access the ePortfolio relevant to their specialty and grade. These doctors have the opportunity to purchase the ePortfolio from their Royal College.
Those doctors wishing to access the Horus ePortfolio should email Julie Jackson, Education Administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
All locally employed doctors at UHL are given access to a study leave budget of £500.00 and 15 days pro rata per annum. Following the Trusts’ study leave policy which can be found on INsite, locally employed doctors can access this budget to attend courses, time for exams or private study for exam preparation.
The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust 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 compromised of a majority of junior doctors from across the Trust, including a mix of grades and specialties, and representatives from Department of Clinical Education and Human Resources.
Some of the recent areas of interest and project work include but not exhaustive to; the junior doctors contract, study leave, delivery of the Odames Library etc.
The DiTC is always looking for new members to join, so if you are interested in joining and making a difference please contact Mary.Hoyes@uhl-tr.nhs.uk.
Latest updates from the DiTC can be found in the ‘News’ section of this website.
