HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap Stage 1 Webinar

We will be delivering a FREE, virtual webinar on the HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap to Practice this evening, 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 hope that, in sharing the learning we’ve accrued with you and your colleagues, we can help to dispel the uncertainty around the Roadmap‘s portfolio route. Lily has mapped herself against stage 1 of the Roadmap and designed her personal development plan 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 portfolio evidence.

HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap Stage 1 Webinar

Following the success of our last HEE Roadmap webinar, our new FCP (Paramedic) Lead, Lily Dixon, has mapped herself against stage 1 of the HEE FCP (Paramedic) Roadmap to Practice, and designed her PDP against stage 2.

Like many people going through the process, we are learning as we go, but this learning will be helpful to share, to support others (be they practitioners or supervisors). To this end, we will be running a webinar on Tuesday 14 September (from 19.0020.00), with Kerri Magnus (Advanced Practice Lead), Rachel Butt (HEE Roadmap Supervisor), and Lily to facilitate. Lily’s personal knowledge, skills, and attributes (KS&A) will be explored, to discuss examples of potential evidence for those on the portfolio route and also demonstrate the use of the HEE FCP framework spreadsheet tool in recording this evidence.

This webinar is FREE, virtual, and will have time for questions at the end.

For further information, please contact Kerri Magnus at [email protected].

Preparing for GP Partnership

From 14.0017.00 on Wednesday 29 September, this virtual session will offer an overview of partnership considerations and of how to prepare for GP Partnership. Becoming a GP practice partner can be a daunting transition — and you can be forgiven for thinking that you “don’t know what you don’t know”. It is essential to fully understand the responsibilities and liabilities of becoming a GP Partner. The legalities of partnership agreements can be complex; this includes agreement types, contracts, obligations, and practice finances.


The aim for the session is to explore what it means to be a GP Partner, what to consider, and how to prepare yourself and understand what development you might need. It is important to also know the risks and what you need to look for.

Here are the key areas the session will focus on:

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:

  • Wednesday 29 September | Click here to register interest
  • Wednesday 27 October
  • Wednesday 24 November
  • Wednesday 26 January

If you know a colleague for whom this will be of interest and is currently on-leave, please do forward it on to them.

HEE FCP (MSK) Roadmap Stage 1 Webinar

BNSSG Training Hub’s new FCP (MSK) Lead, Lizzie Bradshaw, is aware of the confusion around the practical process of mapping to the Knowledge, Skills, & Attributes (KS&A) section in stage 1 of the HEE FCP (MSK) Roadmap.

To this end, we ran a webinar on Wednesday 21 July, from 19.00 to 20.00, to share learning and guidance. Kerri Magnus, our ACP Lead, chaired the meeting discussion, and Rachel Butt – a HEE Roadmap Supervisor – helped to run through a mapping of Lizzie’s personal KS&A to discuss examples of potential evidence for those on the portfolio route, and also demonstrate the use of the HEE FCP framework spreadsheet tool to record this portfolio of evidence.

The recording for this webinar is now available — to watch it, please use the button below!

To help explore the routes to becoming a nurse and the array of opportunities available, Healthier Together will be running a virtual work experience week, this July, for school and college leavers from across Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire.

Five live webinars will be hosted each morning from Monday 5 to Friday 9 July (10.0011.00 each time), to cover the following topics:

Career pathways in health and social care | Monday 5 July

“You have to want to be a doctor or a nurse to work in health and care, right? Wrong! There are over 350 jobs in our sector. We show you the huge variety of career pathways — and what you can do straight out of school or college.”

Day in the life of a care worker and nurse | Tuesday 6 July

What’s a typical day like? Join our webinar to hear a care worker, a nurse, a nursing assistant, and a nurse apprentice talk about their lives at work and the highs and lows of their jobs. There’ll be a chance for you to ask questions, too.”

Patient care and the 6 'Cs' of communication | Wednesday 7 July

What does it take to care for people for a living? And how do our communication skills make all the difference to the way someone feels? By the end of this session, you’ll find that communication is so much more than the words we say.”

Simulation time! Five health and care situations re-enacted | Thursday 8 July

“What would you do? We share five simulations, including a response to someone having a cardiac arrest in the street and a situation in an emergency department. We talk through the decisions taken at every stage — and their consequences.”

What next? Tips on where to apply and how to shine | Friday 9 July

“Where are jobs advertised? What job titles do I search for? How do I make my application stand out? What preparation should I do for the interview? We explain the recruitment process, plus our tips on how to stand out from the crowd.”

And that’s not all — for more information, please consult the flyer via the button below.
