HDR programme and ST study days
If you have a problem during your ST2 GP placement, please contact Sasha.
The ST2s have a separate HDR programme which is for ST2s in their GP placement. We will be looking in detail at the consultation during HDR. We will cover consultation models and communications skills, and learn from video analysis and group work. We also plan to offer some chronic disease management during the ST2 programme. The programme will be flexible, according to your learning needs, so please do feedback if there is anything you would especially like to be covered.
Half day release sessions start at 2pm, please be prompt. A sandwich lunch is provided from 1.30pm. Finish time is 5pm. If you cannot attend a session, please let Sasha know by email.
All ST2s will be expected to attend induction and all the ST study days which are on a 3 year rolling programme (highlighted below in yellow). Please remember to tell your trainer or consultant that you will be out of the practice/hospital for the whole day on these occassions. Lunches are provided.

JULIE & SASHA
After each session, you will need to fill in your OOH book and get it signed by your OOH supervisor. The book will also need to be signed by your trainer. You will have an OOH supervisor at all times when you are on call.
You must complete your OOH by mid May in ST3 so that you can pass the ARCP panel, so please book your places as soon as possible. Failure to complete may well lead to a delay in your CCT. In ST2 GP, you will need to have booked all your OOH sessions and completed most of them by the time you have your ES review.
You will need to complete 72 hours in OOH over a 12/12 attachement; 36 in a 6/12 attachement. Less than full time trainees will work a pro-rata number of OOH sessions.
Gwent OOH is based at:
Vantage Point House
Ty coch way
** FOR SAT NAV USE NP44 7XX
It can be difficult to get access to this building and you will need to phone the call center from the security gate using your mobile.
Please book your sessions via the website at: http://gwent.oohbookings.com.
Contact number: 01633 488701 for rota/ non clinical issues (to organise your on-line booking account and Adastra Setup); or email: ABB_GPOOHRotaManagers@gwent.nhs.uk
If you did not attend OOH induction, you will need to attend a training session. Please contact Dr Sele Musa to arrange this on: Sele.Musa@wales.nhs.uk . Sele is also the person to contact if you have any clinical issues you need to discuss with OOH.
Shropdoc OOH at Brecon
You may also do some out of hours sessions at the Shropdoc base at Brecon War Memorial Hospital.
To book sessions contact Edward Davies by email:
and he will advise on the availability of sessions with clinical supervisors.
If you have completed OOH induction training for Gwent you will not need to undertake additional induction training to gain experience of OOH in Brecon.
