Training Days 2014



Dear All,
  
I’ve tried my best to take on board the feedback I have received about the SpR training days both from individuals and also via the STC. My aim has been to go back to the style of days that we held when I first came to Wessex, ie once every 6 weeks or so, at the various hospitals around the region. They were a great opportunity to see the hospitals that you may not work in and get to meet the consultants. They were also a great opportunity to get to know the other SpRs from around the region. 

There was a general feeling that national meetings such as the cardio-renal should not be part of the training rota, however you will see that I have included the heart valve study day which is partly being organised by Benoy and looks like a really great day which will be relevant to all. In addition, for a national meeting it is fairly low cost. Please register ASAP. The BCS is compulsory so that is also included. 

I’ve not arranged a Jan meeting as you will all be starting in your new posts but I could arrange an evening get together if there is enough of you up for it (please email me – Dominic.Kelly@hhft.nhs.uk)

I hope you all understand that I can’t please everyone but if you have any comments, please feedback. I have also stressed the need for SpRs to be released from their clinical duties for training days and this has the full support of the STC. If you are having difficulties with obtaining study leave then please let me know and I will fight your corner! We will be keeping a register for attendance in 2014. Your ARCP requirements is 60% attendance for the year but please bear in mind that with nights, annual leave etc, this will be tight so you should be attending every day you can and not picking and choosing subjects.

May I remind the fellows that the majority of you are still pre CCST and hence this also applies to you as your certificate will be in General Cardiology.

8th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Cardiorenal Forum - Friday 4th October 2013


The Cardiorenal Forum (CRF) is an independent group formed in 2006, and includes Paul Kalra from Portsmouth. The key objective of the group is to highlight the important clinical overlap that exists between patients presenting with a primary cardiovascular or renal problem.

The Annual Meeting is open to all with an interest in this field. In previous years Wessex trainees have found this event very enjoyable.


Details of this year's meeting are available here:
http://www.cardiorenalforum.com

URGENT!!!! Call for support

Dear Wessex trainee,
 
The BSH board elections are happening as we speak. All BSH members would have received voting papers in the mail. There are 3 candidates local people standing for election. Paul Kalra is standing for deputy chair, I am standing for counsel and Jayne Masters (SUHT senior HF nurse) is also standing for counsel. I think it is really important that we try to get local reps onto the board to maintain a national profile for wessex. In addition it will prevent the centralisation of control to London centres.
 
Thankfully, the voting process allows you to vote for dep chair and 3 different counsellors so you won't need to choose between us!!. I'm told that very few votes are actually returned so 1 or 2 could make a big difference. If you are a BSH member please remember to vote!!
 
Thanks
Dom

BASIC CARDIOVASCULAR INTERVENTION Thursday 25th - Friday 26th April 2013, Wessex Heartbeat Centre, Southampton


As you know, University Hospital Southampton are hosting basic cardiovascular intervention, which is a two day course including lectures, angio reviews, live cases and simulation training. It will cover all aspects of the intervention curriculum including speakers from all over the UK, many of  whom have national/international profiles. The course would be suited to anyone doing intervention training or interested in intervention as a potential career. The programme can be viewed here.

Millbrook, the company organising it are only allowed to advertise the course via the BCIS website or their own website. Deaneries will not send group emails on their behalf to advertise it. So only those people on the Millbrook e-mail mailing list or those who have actively looked at either the Millbrook or BCIS website will be aware the course is happening!

Please encourage all SpRs/STs interested in intervention to register. The details can be found at:


Many thanks.

Feedback from STC Meeting 15th March 2013

Dear All

Please find below the outcome of the STC meeting on Friday 15th March. I am keen to represent all Trainees at these meetings so please contact me on sjgroves@hotmail.com if you have any training concerns.

ARCPs + PYA Dates 
PYAs will be on 6th September 2013. ARCPs will be 6th September and 10th September 2013. 


Wessex Regional Training Days
Great news! Dr Dom Kelly has agreed to take over the training days from Dr Paul Kalra to reinstate the once educational and social SpR Training days. The plan is have 8 regional training days and separate to this BCS x2 training days. Dr Kelly will publish the 2014 training day dates by the end of 2013 so SpRs can ensure clinics are cancelled for the next group of SpR's following on in their post. I highlighted the Echo clinics were not being cancelled in Southampton and Dr Calver agreed this should occur and with more notice we should be asking all SpR clinics are cancelled so Trainees can attend the necessary 60% of Training Days. 

Training days had been a time for education but also for socialising with our peers and increasing our working relationship...not to mention tips and hints for forthcoming ARCPs!

I would really encourage Trainees to ensure clinics are cancelled for the Training days to allow the majority of Trainees to attend.

EPortfolio
Dr Tom Farrell has put together a document to be released on the "Eportfolio Roles and Responsibilities for the Trainee and Ed Supervisor". The document outlines who's responsibility different sections are to complete, when, where and how! Also just an early warning before PYA and ARCPs this year, we are now expected to complete Patient Surveys! Only in ST5 and ST7 but still required. 
If you are using curriculum 2007 please do not fill out any of 2010. 

The Ed Supervisor must release your MSF Summary prior to your ARCP. 

WBAs
The blue print/grid is available online but Wessex deanery alter from this slightly with a minimum requirement of the following:

DOPS TTE - 6 until BSE TTE - BSE TTE Accreditation is COMPULSORY in Wessex Deanery 
DOPS Cath - 6
DOPS Pacing - 6

MiniCex - 6
ACATs - 6
CbD - 6

MSF - 1 EVERY YEAR

Patient Survey - ST5 & ST7
Audit Tool - 1 every year
Teaching Tool - 1 every year

Trainee Survey 
James Rosengarten and myself are going to take over the Trainee Survey. As a Deanery, Wessex scored badly on the GMC survey but the reasons why and comments are never seen by the Deanery. James & I have offered to take over the Trainee Survey to allow Trainees to be as honest as they like about the posts they are in or previously been in. We'd like to hear the good, bad and any recommendations you think would improve the post for the Trainees coming after you. We have asked the Deanery allow us to run this and we will do the investigating rather than have Consultants involved. We hope to have an electronic survey up and running by June/July and really appreciate everyone completing it! I'm looking for brutal honesty please!! 

Revalidation
Currently we are all using our ARCPs as Revalidation but it has been asked if the Trainees CCT date alters for OOPE/R, mat leave, sickness it is the Trainees responsibility to inform Vykkie Winstanley at JRCPTB who will adjust they CCT date and inform our Deanery who in turn updates the GMC and a post CCT revalidation date is generated. 

As I said please contact me if you have any concerns or recommendations.

Kindest Regards

Sam Fitzsimmons

Dr Dom Kelly - The future of Wessex training days

 Dear all,

Just when I thought I had distanced myself from the Wessex SpR rotation, I have been handed the,"honour", of organising this in the place of Paul Kalra who has exponetially increasing clinical and research commitments. There are some sessions booked by Paul already for this year and i'll get these dates out as soon as possible. My efforts will really kick in next year.

I'm very keen to move back to the model that was in place when I started as an SpR in 2006 with around 8-10 or so local meeings held at hospitals in our region. I would like to avoid incorporating national meetings in London etc as I think these types of things should be attended as separate training through study leave (other than the BCS). 

I will aim to produce a comprehensive timetable to cover all subspecialities and general cardiology as well as management and research. In addition I intend to be much more stringent about monitoring attendance. There will be a register at each meeting which will be fed back. In addition I will send out assessment forms after each to maintain quality, the forms will need to be completed whether or not you attended and if not able to, reasons why. The reason for this is completely for your benefit as if it becomes evident that attendance is being restricted, I will very much fight in your corner to put pressure on Trusts to fix this.

If anyone has any thoughts or comments, please let me know.
