Variation in training offered

Vasudevan Krishnan, Specialty Registrar Year 2
09 October 2010

This topic brought up by the two authors has been a cause for concernfor many junior doctors.What I would like to highlight here is variations in various trusts with regards to training exposure.At some places,out of hours cover is primarily restricted to the hospital.While in other trusts, on call doctors are expected to cover their hospital in addition to crisis in the community and cover for cases that emerge in the nearby general hospitals for overdoses etc.It is quite clear that with the introduction of European Working Time Directive (EWTD), the number of on calls have come down thereby reducing opportunities for honing clinical skills in managing emergency situations.One other issue is with the misconception and lack of clarity about the status of trainees when it comes to assessment of Section 136 patients.Differences exist as to whether junior doctors should see on their own and then discuss with seniors or whether only Section 12 approved doctors should see these patients inspite of code of practice giving clear guidance.
