It’s no secret that there are GP recruitment and retention issues in BNSSG primary care. If your general practice surgery is struggling with these issues, becoming a Visa Sponsoring Organisation may be part of the solution.

As a Visa Sponsoring Organisation, your practice can sponsor and employ IMG DiTsInternational Medical Graduate Doctors in Training – from overseas, through the Skilled Worker visa programme (formerly known as Tier 2 visa sponsorship). Engagement with this programme provides a range of benefits.

For instance, did you know that the training period for IMG DiTs is shorter than it once was? As such, work visas are required sooner to support them in staying in the UK, where their skills and talents can be put to use supporting our patient population. Skilled Worker visas can help to plug this gap.

Consider becoming a Visa Sponsoring Organisation — and to help you through the process of doing so, we have an EDI GP Fellow in post, Dr. Shital Godbole.

For more information on how to become a Visa Sponsoring Organisation and why ypu should consider doing so, please expand the boxes below.

If you’d like to discuss further, please contact Dr. Godbole, and she’ll arrange a 1:1 meeting with you.

How does my practice become a Visa Sponsoring Organisation?

General practice surgeries can apply to become a Visa Sponsoring Organisation through the government’s website. Before applying, we advise you get in touch with our EDI GP Fellow, Dr. Shital Godbole, to discuss in a 1:1 meeting. Shital can be reached at shital.godbole@nhs.net.

Severn Deanery has helpfully produced a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) around the process – as it relates to practice surgeries in particular – with links to further resources and reading attached.

Please note: funding is available to reimburse costs –100% for small organisations and 50% for large organisations. Please contact Shital for further information.

What are the benefits of becoming a Visa Sponsoring Organisation?

There are various reasons to consider becoming a Visa Sponsoring Organisation, including:

  • We are in the midst of an unprecedented recruitment crisis, with it having become very difficult to identify and employ new GPs
  • An increasing proportion of GP Trainees are IMGs, who require Skilled Worker visas to remain in the UK
  • The training period for DiTs is shorter, so work visas are needed sooner to keep IMGs in the UK
  • GPs from a wider range of backgrounds will be interested in and able to work at your practice if it’s a Visa Sponsoring Organisation, which will further boost your practice’s marketability
  • It’s cost-effective: funding is available to reimburse costs – 100% for small organisations and 50% for large organisations *
  • Staff retention will be improved, as GPs won’t be forced to leave your practice for reasons outside of your / their control, and will see that you’re proactively interested in keeping them
  • GPs from a more varied range of backgrounds will be able to work at your practice, thereby supporting Equality, Diversity, & Inclusion (EDI) targets

For more information about any of the above (* including available funding), please contact our EDI GP Fellow, Dr. Shital Godbole, to discuss in a 1:1 meeting. Shital can be reached at shital.godbole@nhs.net.

Following the Spending Review settlement for 2023 / 24, NHS England (NHSE) have confirmed the arrangements for continued professional development (CPD) funding for 2023 / 24.

This investment will provide eligible clinicians with funding to further their personal professional development, and will support system and population health priorities. The ultimate aim is to support the NHS by building the skills and expertise of our workforce, who are vital to both services and communities.

This funding is a one-year offer for the financial year 2023 / 24, following on from the previous three years of funding. Allocations for this year have been calculated using 2020 ESR headcount data, which may mean this value is slightly different from last year’s allocation.

For more information, please expand the boxes below.
When ready, click Apply for Funding below to access the CPD Funding application form.

How much funding is available?

The allocation for this financial year will be £333.33 per person.

What if learners wish to undertake a module that costs over £333.33?

Please note that the funding allocation is up to a maximum of £333.33; we do not have access to funding beyond this amount.

If the course exceeds £333.33, learners may wish to:

  • Selffund
  • Request practice funding
  • Apply for educational grants from other organisations, such as the Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) or Royal College of Nursing (RCN)

Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to liaise with other organisations on learners’ behalf.

Can it be used to fund PCN training for eligible individuals?

Practices can use allocated funds to best suit the continued professional development (CPD) needs of their eligible employees. They may decide to use it as individual practices, for individual employees, or group the money together for use as a PCN.

Which employees can this money be used for?

This money is for the following roles, provided individual learners are employed by PCNs or practices in BNSSG:

  • Nurses
  • Nurse Associates (NAs)
  • Paramedics
  • Physiotherapists
  • Podiatrists
  • Dietitians
  • And Occupational Therapists (OTs)

Does the education need to be accredited?

No, funds can be used for any accredited or non-accredited professional development. This can include virtual or face-to-face training, events, conferences, and university or other Higher Education Institute (HEI) modules. The education does need to be relevant to the role and in line with the needs of the practice / PCN, however.

Please note: you should not utilise CPD funding for statutory and mandatory training, or backfill of staff.

Here are some examples of how learners may wish to use their allocation:

  • NB Medical / Red Whale subscriptions
  • Level 3 / M study at a HEI for individual employees with identified learning need(s)
  • Group education within a practice or PCN, in accordance with identified learning need(s) — this could cover topics like:
    • “Recognising the sick child”
    • Sexual and reproductive healthcare
    • Women’s health and menopause
    • Mental health
    • Long-term condition updates

Practices may have already put some of their budget for this financial year towards education, since April 2023; if so, practices can reclaim this funding retroactively, but will need to provide the following information:

  • The role(s) of the individual(s) who were trained
  • The course they attended
  • The name of the provider
  • The cost

What is the application process?

1. Learners should seek approval from their practice / line manager

2. Complete the CPD Funding application form

3. Check the availability of proposed learning

4. When funding has been approved, the practice should pay the provider directly and invoice BNSSG Training Hub (we will send invoicing instructions in the funding confirmation email)

If one person doesn't want to use their funding, can it be transferred to another person?

Unfortunately, learners cannot transfer their allocated funds to another individual. If the relevant practice / PCN wishes to hold group education sessions, other clinicians can attend if from the eligible roles.

For example:
A practice wishes to hold a menopause training event for eligible Nurses and Allied Health Professionals (AHPs). The cost of the training is £666.66. There is no maximum headcount, so you may deem it suitable for ineligible staff (such as GPs, Physician Associates (PAs), and Clinical Pharmacists) to attend.

You must provide specific information if you wish to run group sessions, to be emailed to Nina Brown (TH PCN Support & Education Development Manager) for authorisation. The following information, specifically, must be disclosed:

  • The role of the eligible individual(s)
  • The course content
  • The provider’s name
  • The cost

More about simulation based education

What is Simulation Training?

Simulation training is an established educational tool in healthcare, and there are many benefits for primary care teams, with simulation-based education having shown numerous benefits for individuals, teams, and systems.

Simulation training allows people and teams to experience and observe challenging situations in a safe environment, to share experiences, and to learn from both peers and facilitators to improve the care that we can deliver to our patients. There has been growing interest in Primary Care Simulation to:

  • Improve staff confidence and capabilities
  • Contribute to team working and other non-technical skills
  • Build awareness of other team members skills and strengths
  • Highlights latent errors in systems and processes
  • Increase staff morale and satisfaction in roles
Training Hub simulation activity so far

BNSSG Training Hub worked with local secondary care simulation centres over 2022 to train several ‘Simulation Ambassadors’. These Simulation Ambassadors are primary care clinicians with an interest in education who have had additional training in the theory and practice of simulation, to enable them to design and deliver simulation sessions to primary care staff and teams across BNSSG, co-ordinated and supported by a HEE funded Simulation Fellow.

Examples of simulation sessions that have been delivered include:

  • Full day simulation sessions delivered in MDT settings covering 6 different scenarios with a focus on both paediatric and adult urgent and unscheduled care (Sept 2022)
  • Single scenario simulation sessions delivered to practice teams in their own clinical environments (through 2022 and ongoing into 2023)
  • Half day training sessions focused on managing difficult conversations for non-clinical staff (Oct 2022)
  • Simulation courses designed and delivered for GP Doctors in Training
    • ‘Duty Doctor’ sessions to prepare ST3s for managing such sessions independently post CCT (March / April 2023)
    • Consultation based paediatric simulation session for GP STs with a focus on UUSC (Feb/March 2023)
    • “Challenging consultations” session in conjunction with TPDs and using actors (Jan 2023)
  • Safeguarding in primary care for ‘new to general practice nurses’ and GP STs in conjunction with Avon LMC’s ‘Legacy Nurses’

Topics that have been covered include:

  • Team based management of an unwell / collapsed patient in a practice
  • UUSC paediatric presentations (e.g. acute asthma, febrile child, non-accidental injury)
  • Mental health presentations
  • Shared decision making
  • Adult and paediatric safeguarding scenarios
  • Managing challenging conversations with patients (for both clinical and non-clinical staff groups)
  • Managing the angry patient

Though there are many other topics that simulation lends itself to as an educational medium.

The Training Hub's offer

In 2024 the Training Hub aims to be able to continue to deliver a variety of simulation based educational sessions:

  • Simulation educator ‘train-the-trainer’ course to build and develop the faculty available to deliver simulation sessions.
  • In-practice simulation scenarios, which can be focused on the team-based management of the unwell / deteriorating patient or other subjects agreed between the practice and simulation teams.
  • We are exploring other areas that we can contribute to the learning and development of the BNSSG workforce.

We will be sending out more information on these different simation offers through the BNSSG Training Hub newsletters and via PCNs, so please look out for these, though you are also welcome to e-mail us to find out how to be more involved in the program.

GP Peer Support Pilot

Photo from Hannah Busing
Apply by Friday 16 December
What is this, and who is it for?

Working with BNSSG Training Hub, Dr. Andrew Hunter (GP Retention Fellow) is introducing a pilot project to support GPs who have left clinical practice due to workload pressures and burnout, and those seriously considering doing so.

Working as a GP has never been more challenging, but we want to help improve your overall well-being and job satisfaction through facilitated peer support. This will support you with continuing to work in primary care, or with returning to clinical work if you’re not currently in post.

The vision is to provide a series of 6 facilitated peer-support group sessions for a group of 10 – 12 GPs, held in person for 4 hours every 3 weeks. This will be during normal working hours, starting in early 2023. The aims of the pilot are to improve overall well-being, job satisfaction, and clinical experience of participants, helping those who have left get back to work and those thinking of leaving feel more confident about their future in primary care.

How can you get involved?

Expressions of interest should be submitted through our sign-up form below, and any questions about the pilot to andrew.hunter17@nhs.net.

We are looking for 10 GPs for the first batch of sessions. We hope that we can find a regular day and time that is mutually convenient to attendees and the facilitator. There are questions about your regular availability below.

Expressions of interest are welcome until Friday 16 December, 2022.

Expressions of interest should be submitted through our sign-up form below, and any questions about the pilot to andrew.hunter17@nhs.net.

                          HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap Stage 1 & 2 Workshop

                          Photo from Mareks Steins
                          Running on Thursday 8 December | Time TBD
                          What is this?

                          This FREE, face-to-face workshop, organised by Lily Dixon (Paramedic Profession Lead, BNSSG Training Hub), is intended to help paramedics from across BNSSG in mapping themselves against the HEE Roadmap to Practice. Specifically, against stage 1 (“Knowledge, Skills, & Attributes (KSA)”), and then how to produce your Primary Care Portfolio (including a personal development plan (PDP)) for stage 2.

                          By the end of this workshop:

                          • You should be signed off on stage 1 of the HEE Roadmap
                          • You will have reviewed your individual evidence, to identify any gaps
                          • You will have developed a personal development plan, to get stage 2 signed off
                          • You and your peers will discuss how to obtain the evidence needed
                          • You will also have discussed audit ideas
                          Who will be speaking?

                          This session will be delivered by Lily Dixon (Paramedic Profession Lead, BNSSG Training Hub).

                          Where will this be?

                          This session will be delivered at Aztec Hotel & Spa (BS32 4TS).

                                  • Kim Ball (Director of Nursing, ALMC)
                                  • The South West Integrated Personalised Care Team
                                  • Linda Ruse (Head of Practice Support and Resilience, One Care)
                                  • Robin Judson (GP, Frome Valley Medical Centre)

                                  What are the benefits?

                                  Research demonstrates that induction programmes benefit both employers and employees, and can support with:

                                  • CQC compliance: to provide safe and effective care, practices need to ensure that all of their staff have appropriate training, induction, and access to accurate information that will allow them to safely and effectively manage patients
                                  • Ensuring that employees integrate well into the organisation and across the system
                                  • Retention, reducing turnover, and absenteeism, and increasing employee commitment and job satisfaction
                                  • Starting a new role in a new organisation can cause anxiety; an induction programme can enable new employees to understand more about the wider organisation, their role, ways of working, and how to meet new colleagues

                                                  Parts 1 & 2 on Thursday 21 October & Thursday 4 November
                                                  How can apprenticeships benefit my practice? What is the apprenticeship levy? What are levy transfers? What are T Levels?

                                                  Do you have questions about the apprenticeships available in primary care — perhaps the questions above, perhaps a couple more?

                                                  This autumn’s Apprenticeships in Primary Care Webinars are here to provide answers — organised by BNSSG Training Hub, and to be delivered in collaboration with Healthier Together, Avon LMC, and HEE South West, these webinars will run on Thursday 21 October (from 12.00 – 14.00) and Thursday 4 November (from 12.00 – 13.30).

                                                  They will not only provide a useful overview of apprenticeships, levy options, and the national workforce context, but also explore standards for specific roles and professions: Nursing Associates (NAs), Trainee Nursing Associates (TNAs), Registered Nursing Degree Apprenticeships (RDNAs), and Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs). Part 1 on 21.10.21 will cover NAs, TNAs, and RDNAs, while Part 2 on 4.11.21 will cover ACPs.
