We are working hard to improve local induction. Medicine is perhaps a strange profession in that our juniors are often expected to turn up and work almost immediately with little preparation or planning. Historically as DME and as foundation lead I have seen docs fall into difficulties as a result of a lack of an effective local induction. We really need to make sure that our new starters are safe to practice for the benefit of our teams, our trust and most importantly for our patients.
So, with a few weeks to go it’s time to think hard about how you are going to make this year’s induction the best that it has ever been.
Click on the link below to look at our guide for local induction and do the best that you can for our new starters. Welcome them into the trust, train them, help them and welcome them.
At CMFT we have an induction lead for the trust in John Bright (Acute Medicine Consultant) who can be contacted for further information and help.
