Induction information for postgraduate doctors undertaking their medical education at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, including information about your induction programme, annual leave requests and rota queries.
IT network login, all clinical system logins and ID badges will be issued at the Trust induction.
At the beginning of your programme (usually on your first day at Medway), you will be required to attend Doctors Trust induction in the Education Centre, designed to familiarise you with the Trust in general.
Due to Covid-19 certain induction days (with larger cohorts) are being held virtually via webinar (so you will not be required to be present on site at these events), whilst other smaller groups are still attending on site face to face, social distanced induction sessions.
The Medical Education team will contact you to confirm how and where
your induction will be delivered and send you the induction programme
and all other relevant information required.
Departmental local induction
Once Trust induction has been completed (usually on the day after Trust induction), you will attend departmental local induction programmes designed to familiarise you with the relevant specialty department (including organisational and educational aspects). Clinical guidelines used in the department will be explained at the induction. Written information on timetables and other arrangements will also be provided as part of departmental inductions.
Mandatory training can be completed via My ESR:
In line with the HEE streamlining process and to reduce duplication, if we are in receipt of evidence that you have completed any of these modules below at your previous Trust, and they meet our Trust requirements with regards to the refresher period, then you will not need to complete them again.
We can accept evidence of completion from your previous Trust in the form of an Inter Authority Transfer (IAT), which is shared directly from Trust to Trust, or you can provide evidence to us directly in the form of certificates or screen shots.
For any mandatory training queries please contact the Organisational Development team via our internal HR Service Desk portal.

Requesting annual leave
All leave is requested through e-Roster.
Annual leave must be requested a minimum of 6 weeks prior to taking leave.
The e-roster team will do their best to inform you if it has been approved by 4 weeks prior to your leave.
If you have on call shifts during the time you wish to take you must arrange cover and this should be added to the request in the notes section on e-Roster so the roster team are aware of the changes.
The e-Roster will sanction leave on the basis of the ward cover at the time, so it is worth discussing leave with your colleagues to be sure to get your leave.
It is no longer a requirement to ask your consultant to sign off your leave.
For all enquires contact the e-Rostering Team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
