          NSHE / I BNSSG Extended Mentors Scheme

          Photo from AbsolutVision
          Applications must be in by Monday 31 January, 2022

          Following on from the well-received newly-qualified GP mentor programme, we are collaborating with NHS England and Improvement in finding GP mentors to offer support to their colleagues at all stages of their career. This is a great portfolio working opportunity, enabling participating GPs to develop their mentoring, leadership, and coaching skills, all while supporting their fellow practitioners.

          The overall aim is to retain experienced GPs working in primary care through this exciting portfolio working opportunity, while supporting other GPs at all stages of their career with high-quality mentoring. All participants will be funded to complete the European Mentoring and Coaching Council European Quality Aware (EQA), delivered by the NHS South West Leadership Academy.

          To join, GP mentors need to work at least three clinical sessions per week and must be able to join the scheme for a minimum of one year.

          For more information on this opportunity, please download the slide deck via the button below.

          To register your interest in joining, please complete the application form and send it to [email protected]. Applications must be in by Monday 31 January, 2022.

                  • Targeted lung health checks project
                  • COVID and ‘missing cancers’ insights

                  Additionally, please note for your team: dates are being planned early in the new year for GP colleagues to sign up to NB medical clinical update dates funded by the CCG.

                                  The world of advanced practice is undergoing dramatic shifts, both locally and nationally; but that doesn’t mean you can’t soar!

                                  To support practices with these changes, BNSSG Training Hub’s ACP Lead and chair of The ACP Forum, Kerri Magnus, will be running PCN Advanced Practice Leads Meetings monthly.

                                  These meetings will focus on strategic issues, such as funding and career pathways, acting as a portal through which to disseminate new information and updates around advanced practice. They will also support attendees in developing as leaders, providing an opportunity to discuss support needed.

                                  Attendees should be:

                                  • Advanced practitioners willing to circulate information to the rest of the advanced practice workforce in their PCN
                                  • Able to attend monthly meetings

                                  Meetings will be held on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 11.00 – 12.00. The first will be on Wednesday 10 November, to discuss the new radiological protocol for first contact, enhanced, and advanced practitioners, and provide an introduction to the Health Education England (HEE) Advanced Practice Demand Survey, due to come around in March 2022.

                                  To register your interest or nominate a colleague, please contact Kerri at [email protected].

                                  The next of BNSSG Training Hub’s GP Buddy Meetings is this Wednesday 24 November, from 20.00 – 21.00. These meetings, arranged by one of the Hub’s GP Fellows, Dr. Pamela Curtis, offer a safe space for GPs returning to work after a short career break (due to parental leave, ill health, or caring responsibilities).

                                  This is an opportunity in which to discuss the things that matter to you – be it clinical work, career goals, or your personal well-being – and in a format of your choosing (as a ‘study group, via action learning sets, etc.). Increase your confidence, and support colleagues in a similar boat.

                                  Is remote consulting compatible with personalised care or does something have to give?

                                  In a new report commissioned by the NHS Personalised Care Institute, and conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration West (NIHR ARC West) and the University of Bristol’s Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC), the relationship between personalised care and remote consulting is examined. Both are at the forefront of NHS England’s agenda, but the distance between clinician and patient afforded by remote consulting is not necessarily conducive to creating health plans jointly them.

                                  In addressing this potential conflict, researchers sought to answer the following questions:

                                  • How does remote consultation affect access to healthcare and quality of care?
                                  • Is remote healthcare as good as face-to-face?
                                  • When are remote consultations not suitable?
                                  • Can personalised care be delivered remotely?

                                  In short, the report concludes that remote consultations are not inherently good or bad, with their effectivity being dependent on the patient’s needs, life stage, and finances. Health professionals are advised to think carefully about how to use remote consultations, and for what purpose, and to enable patients in having a choice about how their consulted.

                                  BNSSG Training Hub will be delivering a FREE, virtual webinar on the HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap to Practice this coming Tuesday 14 September, from 19.00 – 20.00. Facilitating will be Lily Dixon, the Training Hub’s Paramedic Lead; Kerri Magnus, Advanced Practice Lead; and Rachel Butt, qualified HEE Roadmap Supervisor.

                                  We are aware of the uncertainty around the HEE Roadmap, so we hope that – in sharing the learning we’ve accrued with you and your colleagues – we can help to clarify things, both for paramedics and supervisors, be they AHPs, GPs, or GPNs. To this end, Lily has mapped herself against stage 1 of the HEE Roadmap and designed her PDP against stage 2; this, in combination with her responses to the knowledge, skills, and attributes (KS&A) section, will be discussed and examined for examples of potential evidence for the portfolio route. There will be time to answer your questions, too, so do bring them along.

                                  If this webinar is relevant and of interest to you, do come along – there’s no limit on numbers, so feel free to invite any colleagues, too.

                                  With an eye to the NHS Long-Term Plan’s goals, the HEE National Workforce Transformation team are offering to train primary care colleagues in BNSSG to use the HEE Star. The Star has been used by the team to address workforce challenges and define innovative workforce solutions across the country, as outlined in the videos linked below:

                                  HEE is confident that increased use of the HEE Star model throughout primary care will support delivery of both integrated working and new roles. This training is available in two parts: Level 1 is an introductory webinar, and Level 2 – aimed at those experienced with facilitating workforce change or required to by their role – consists of two sessions followed by a HEE Star workshop focused on local primary care workforce challenges. Both levels are available this September.

                                  Further information on both Levels 1 and 2 can be found in this document, produced by HEE.


                                  If you or a colleague join either level of the HEE Star Training, the Training Hub requests that you contact us, too, at [email protected]. In your message, please confirm:

                                  Is remote consulting compatible with personalised care or does something have to give?

                                  In a new report commissioned by the NHS Personalised Care Institute, and conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration West (NIHR ARC West) and the University of Bristol’s Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC), the relationship between personalised care and remote consulting is examined. Both are at the forefront of NHS England’s agenda, but the distance between clinician and patient afforded by remote consulting is not necessarily conducive to creating health plans jointly them.

                                  In addressing this potential conflict, researchers sought to answer the following questions:

                                  • How does remote consultation affect access to healthcare and quality of care?
                                  • Is remote healthcare as good as face-to-face?
                                  • When are remote consultations not suitable?
                                  • Can personalised care be delivered remotely?

                                  In short, the report concludes that remote consultations are not inherently good or bad, with their effectivity being dependent on the patient’s needs, life stage, and finances. Health professionals are advised to think carefully about how to use remote consultations, and for what purpose, and to enable patients in having a choice about how their consulted.

                                  In collaboration with PCC, BNSSG Training Hub will be once more running a FREE, virtual course for those aspiring to become practice partners, from 14.00 – 17.00 on Wednesday 16 March. Interest is welcomed from a wide range of roles, be it GPs, GPNs, pharmacists, allied health professionals, or practice managers.

                                  Becoming a GP practice partner can be a daunting transition, and it’s essential to fully understand the responsibilities and liabilities of being one. The legalities of partnership agreements can be complex; this includes agreement types, contracts, obligations, and practice finances.

                                  In addition to providing a broad overview of what it means to be a GP partner, the session will focus on these key areas:

                                  Partnerships
                                  • Agreement types and what to be aware of
                                  • Contracts (GMS & PMS)
                                  • Company types and what to be aware of and implications
                                  • Partnership clauses around personal issues, such as parity, parental leave, and cooling-off periods, etc.
                                  • What are my rights, obligations, and who can support me? (BMA) & what can I negotiate?
                                  Practice Finances
                                  • What ‘good’ looks like and what to check for in the financials — as opposed to actual pages in the finance pack, what should I look for?
                                  • Partnership salaries and profit share
                                  • Estates management
                                  • What are the major income streams in general practice?
                                  • Once joined, how can you maximise income streams?
                                  Support
                                  • Support resources for circulation

                                          General Practice Teaching Workshops

                                          BNSSG Training Hub has arranged for a series of online workshops to be run this autumn, exploring the themes of Well-Being, Shared Decision Making, and Risk Management. Spearheaded by Dr. Alice Blackwell, one of the Hub’s GP Fellows, these workshops are principally aimed at newly-qualified GPs, GPNs, and ANPs, but admission may be opened up to a wider audience in due course — please keep an eye out!


                                          Further information on each of the workshops is available below:

                                          Well-Being Workshop

                                          Running from 14.0017.30 on Tuesday 5 October, to be delivered by Hannah Miller (Founding Director of Sidekick and Gallup-certified Strengths Coach), this session will consider:

                                          • How is your well-being?
                                          • Gallup research into well-being – rooted in science and actionable in your daily life
                                          • The 5 areas of well-being: what they are, what they look like in our lives, and how we might take steps to improve them
                                          • Form an action plan and shift the needle towards a healthy, thriving lifestyle
                                          Shared Decision Making Workshop

                                          Running from 14.0017.30 on Tuesday 12 October, to be delivered by Dr. Shaba Nabi (Clinical Lead for a vibrant, inner city practice in Bristol). This session will feature an interactive, practical workshop on shared decision making.

                                          If you have not already, it would be beneficial to watch the 1-hour Awareness Raising webinar we released, in conjunction with Dr. Nabi, in early 2021. To watch it, please click here.

                                          Risk Management Workshop

                                          Running from 14.0017.30 on Thursday 14 October, to be delivered by Dr. Kathy Ryan (GP and Medical Director of BrisDoc). This interactive session will delve into Clinical Risk, Fear, and Courage, exploring our fears behind the cases that keep ups awake and night and discussing the factors which can support courage, enable us to sleep, and – at the same time – keep the patient centre stage.

                                          These sessions are now open to GPs, GPNs, and APNs across the region!

                                          To register your interest in any of these sessions, please contact Jessie Saul at [email protected].

                                          Buddy Meetings for return-to-work GPs

                                          For the next phase of BNSSG Training Hub’s ongoing support for GPs returning to work from short career breaks, Dr. Pamela Curtis will be holding Buddy Meetings on the last Wednesday of each of the next few months.

                                          These meetings will provide a safe space to discuss the things that matter to you – be it clinical work, career goals, or well-being – and in a format of your choosing (as a ‘study group’, via action learning sets, etc.). It is hoped these will increase the confidence of and support for GPs returning to practice.

                                          Planned dates are as follows, from 20.00 – 21.00 on each day:
