Guardians of Safe Working

 

Lead Employer would like to remind trainees of the role of our two guardians of safe working, who are responsible for monitoring arrangements under the 2016 junior doctor contract.

Exception reporting provides a mechanism to inform StHK as your employer and also to inform your host organisation if your day to day work varies significantly and/ or regularly from your work schedule.

When you are on placement in a hospital trust you will be notified of your GOSW at your local induction.

Mr Michael Chadwick is the designated Guardian for StHK and overarching Guardian for our Lead Employer in relation to speciality trainees working in acute trusts and other organisations with 10 or more trainees.

Champions of Flexible Working

 

HEE is committed to providing junior doctors who wish to transition to LTFT training with the necessary advice and assistance to ensure the process is relatively seamless, while at the same time also support those trainees who have already transitioned to LTFT training.

 

This has led to the introduction of the role of LTFT Trust Champions in each trust.

 

These champions will have an overview of all LTFT trainees within their trust and will be available to advise and assist any trainee within that trust regardless of grade and specialty on any concerns they have over the LTFT process and the LTFT experience. This role is designed to improve existing support for LTFT training rather than replace existing support to individual trainees.

 

You can find a list of the Champions of Flexible Working via region below:

Junior Doctor’s forum

 

The junior doctor’s forum primarily represents trainees in addressing concerns pertaining to work conditions, education and training, supporting the work of the Guardian of Safe Working in ensuring that junior doctors’ working hours and conditions are effectively monitored and their contractual rights upheld.

 

The forum is an opportunity  for junior doctors of all grades to come together locally and work together to ensure their colleague’s views and concerns are represented to management, and to share knowledge and ideas about improving their working lives.

 

The next Junior Doctors forums for GP Trainees will take place on the following dates:
