How to get your CCT

How to get your CCT

May 23, 2019

How to get your CCT - as a GP with RCGP First5 lead Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein

Watch this video if you want to know all the steps and processes you need to follow to get your CCT - with current RCGP First5 lead - Jodie Blackadder-Weinstein

In this video, we cover sorting out your GMC allocations, ARCP, what an outcome 6 is, performer list issues, indemnity, and networks after finishing including supporting organisations.

This is a must see video if you are about to become a newly qualified GP.

CCTing… What you need to know and do.

🔴 Subscribe: https://bit.ly/eGPlearningYTsubscribe 🔴

GMC

You should get an email from the GMC approx. 3-6 months before you are due to CCT inviting you to make sure all your details are up to date, including your email address. Check it!

Once your final ARCP is completed and you get an Outcome 6, you will be contacted by RCGP/or via eportfolio to click ‘apply for CCT’ and you will be guided through the process. Remember you need to pay your fee to the GMC to be added to the GP register (£399, currently being reviewed)
https://www.gmc-uk.org/registration-and-licensing/managing-your-registration/fees-and-funding

Performers list

Make sure you are on the performers list and clarify your region’s requirements to update the record from ‘registrar’ to ‘GP salaried/partner/locum etc’. If you are moving areas, there are notification forms on the website.
https://www.performer.england.nhs.uk/

Indemnity

Make sure you update your indemnity provider with your changing work details (with dates) and continue to do so.

Pensions and Financial Advice

Consider your finances, and what and how you are earning will likely change on CCTing. Ask around for accountants and financial advisors that colleagues use, and consider income protection.
Watch our video on Money advice for GP locums, salaried and partners - https://youtu.be/XhCE8xZlFmI

Networks

Get in touch with your local First5 network. Almost every faculty is holding an AiT/First5 ‘Life after VTS’ and ‘Welcome to the faculty’ event over the next 12 months, currently available dates here:

3 GPs in an eGPlearning Podblast

3 GPs in an eGPlearning Podblast

December 28, 2018

3 GPs in an eGPlearning Podblast

 

Welcome by Andy, Gandhi and…….Shubz

 

How did Shubz get into podcasting from his mygpevents journey to listening to inspirational speakers. This led to his podcast 2GPs in a pod and speaking with Zoe Williams, Rupy Aujla and others

‘You do not have to leave medicine to do all this other cool stuff’

Gandhi talks about having flux in your working week as recommended by notable people like Warren Buffet and Pat Flynn

 

We discuss how to utilise time as a locum for portfolio working and balance in your roles.

Andy talks about the ease of saying yes, but the importance of saying no occasionally

 

We then discuss the Next Gen GP programme created by Nishma Manek with amazing talks by Nikki Kanani (our Supreme leader- including how difficult it has been for both podcasts to pin her down for an interview given NHS England oversight).

 

Gandhi talks about the importance of teams around you and how they can support you ie his partners and working on the podblast with Andy as a team.

Shubz echoed this with a shout out to his MyGPevents partners Mehul and Max.

 

We did a recap of Andy and Gandhi’s year, starting with Gandhi which including being elected and attending his first RCGP Council meeting as a National Rep, and the importance of having your say- including his controversial comments on the partnership review by Nigel Watson.

 

We all talked about how the omission of a baseline increase in the global sum seemed confusing and the impact of indemnity funding and planned changes to pension regulations that may significantly impact the future of GP partnerships.

 

Gandhi finished off with talking about his continued efforts with the eGPlearning platform including TipThursday on YouTube, and his 84km Pilgrimage in Iraq in October.

 

Andy talks about his work with the NCGPA including signposting health- a project applicable to any locality to help with practice-based signposting, his video journey for patient information videos for the area:

Which has gone mainstream by being shown in the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham in the new year.

He also talked about the power as a partner being able to innovate in your own practice. HIs focus has been on creating a user-friendly website seen here: Parkside medical practice

 

Note Andy did all the illustrations, which is also on offer to your our listeners as part of the collaborator reward for supporting the eGPlearning Podblast on  Patreon account. At this limited reward, Andy will draw you into our new banner as a caricature.

 

We then move on to talk about health technology moving forward including the regulation of health tech by NHS England and NICE, RCGP, and the hype cycle on artificial intelligence (AI) and challenges off innovating in the NHS.

 

Andy then mentions his vision of the use of wet technology as discussed in our genomics podcast (with 23andMe) earlier in the year. Andy makes his 2019 prediction of the AI backlash in healthcare with examples like the Wysa app.

Gandhi predicts the rise of personalised medicine focusing on individual patient care vs condition-based care as patient focus shifts from wanting to know if they are unwell to wanting to know if they are healthy. He states in his view the NHS is designed to look after you when you are unwell, not to make you healthy.

Evidence of this direction is with our Secretary of state for health Matt Hancock and his focus.

 

We talk about how technology can help tackle health inequalities but also exacerbate them, particularly around access. We commented that much of the technology is based on improving access but not productivity.

 

We then discussed the impact technology can have on health with Gandhi using an example from the programme Criminal Minds about knowing your own family history and the impact that may have on your own health outlook. Does it create a healthier life or does it create health anxiety?

 

This led on to a discussion about overdiagnosis and overtreatment- key challenges in health care moving forward. This included a discussion on Martin Marshall Vice-chair of the RCGP and his article on rethinking medicine.

 

We moved on to talking about the use of data like Facebook and metrics to hyper-target health information a little Black Mirror-like,

 

We then ask the question,- how would you spend £100million on health tech

 

Gandhi mentioned his idea for a unified video consultation platform for primary and secondary care. Could the NHS app provide this?

 

Shubz talked about using technology to facilitate communication to provide bandwidth so we can be more effective in caring for patients.

 

Andy talked about creating a system to help physician productivity - Sherwood tech incubators. Gandhi then changed his idea to create an NHS approved a version of Asana - a project management tool.

 

We finished by creating a Christmas tradition of doing a roundup episode between the two podcasts each year.

Show Notes…

 

How to contact Keith and get involved in the Medical VR community:

 

Keith’s first experience with VR was through the arcade version of  Dactyl Nightmare:

 https://youtu.be/v6t69mp0ZhE

 

Modern VR products such as the Oculus Rift are a much superior experience

Project CAR - Oculus Rift:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY6QRN6hI-Y&feature=youtu.be

 

Keith describes the 5 use categories for Medical VR:

 

  1. VR as an adjunct to existing treatments - To improve pain and reduce anxiety during interventions
  2. VR as a form of therapy - e.g. to treat phobias, anxiety, mental health problems
  3. VR as a diagnostic tool - Eye tracking and assessing responses during simulations - e.g. eye tracking to diagnose Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  4. VR for education and training
    1. Medical Realities: https://www.medicalrealities.com
    2. Shafi Ahmed: @ShafiAhmed5
  5. VR expanding a patient's understanding - empathy - living in someone else's shoes. What's it like to have dementia.

 https://youtu.be/Zch3fg0orzo

Downsides and Risks of VR in medicine:

 

  • Nausea and sickness - patients may unable to tolerate VR
  • The intensity of experience not suitable for some
  • Minimum Age, perhaps as low as 7 yrs
  • Many application involve simulated violence - unsuitable for some
  • Infection control - equipment needs to be sterilised between users

 

Keith’s current projects:

  • PREVENT ICU Delirium - Psychological Resilience Using Virtual Reality Exposure as a Novel Therapy to reduce ICU Delirium

    • Does VR pre-experience of intensive care unit reduce incidence and severity of postoperative delirium - about to begin small-scale study.
  • “See What I See” - Kent and Surrey trial service
    • Use of “Expert Eye” based on Google Glass, to allow Doctors to remotely visit care homes. Carer wears smart glass and is provided with remote expert support by a GP.

 

Entry level equipment to get a taste of VR and start using it:

 

Equipment to take things to the “next level”:

Oculus Rift https://www.oculus.com/rift/

HTC Vive https://www.vive.com/us/product/vive-virtual-reality-system/
