As a trainee on the HEE YH School of Anaesthesia rotation there are a few bits and pieces that you should be aware of, in terms of your responsibilties to the programme. These are discussed briefly below.
Personal Sickness Record
If you need help and support with ill health then please see the "Health, Stress and Wellbeing" section HERE
Each Trust will have its own sickness policy which you should check for details. However, it they usually take the form of the following requirements: In the case of absence due to sickness for three days or more a self certification form must be sent within the first 7 days of absence to the Medical Personnel Department in your employing trust. In the case of absence due to sickness for more than 7 consecutive days a Doctors Certificate must be sent to the Medical Personnel Department in your employing trust. Upon return, trainees may have to have a return to work or "fit note" meeting, often with their ES.
Any periods off sickness will need mentioning on the Form R in the Time Out of Training (TOOT) box.
Trainees unable to attend placements due to sickness, or who have an illness that is likely to be greater than 1 week (e.g. fracture, operation, etc) should inform their local College Tutor and Educational supervisor at the earliest opportunity and estimate length of absence. Please also let your TPD know of any periods off sick so that, if required, they can adjust your ARCP and rotation accordingly.
Change Of Personal Details
It is essential that the school maintains up to date contact information for all trainees. If there are any changes to this information (address, email, contact details) during your training please contact the Programme Support staff in order that school records may be updated.
