UUC Supervisor tasks
The key tasks are to provide effective clinical supervision, ensuring patient and trainee safety and provide constructive feedback (written and oral) to trainees. Any significant concerns about a trainee must be shared with the GP training programme. The best way to do this is to email the programme manager. If a single problem has arisen, such as late arrival for a shift, please document this on the UUC form and email the trainer. There are links to the training programmes on this website. Your provider should have the email address of the trainer but this can also be obtained from the programme.
The supervisor creates a record of the shift (OOH1) which the GPStR takes back to the trainer, for debriefing and for recording in the educational record of that GPStR. If the supervisor is working remotely then this form must be emailed to the trainee.
