Urgent and Unscheduled Care (includes Out of Hours)

One of the requirements during GP training is to demonstrate your capabilities in Urgent and Unscheduled care.  This includes delivering safe patient care, demonstrating effective communication skills, maintaining continuity for patients and colleagues, coordinating across services and enabling patient self efficacy. 

The requirements for urgent and unscheduled care, which includes out of hours have recently changed and the attached document will explain in more detail what is required in order for you to demonstrate your capabilities within this curriculum area.

You will need to provide evidence of your engagement with UUC. Similarly you will need to provide evidence of your performance in this setting. 

Documentation of Urgent and Unscheduled care can be done in 2 ways:

  1. Clinical encounters (will be renamed clinical case reviews from August 2020), where new learning has occurred and you wish to reflect on this learning.
  2. Completing the UUC /OOH session feedback forms with your supervisor for this session. These should be shared with your ES and also uploaded to the OOH (will be renamed as supporting documentation form August 2020) section of your learning log. 

If you have a contractual requirement to complete Urgent and Unscheduled care/OOH the number of sessions and the hours spent in these sessions will need to be documented. A spreadsheet will need to be completed and uploaded to your ePortfolio under the OOH / Supporting Documentation heading so that it can be reviewed before the completion of training.
