The appraiser should be experienced, able to deliver a robust appraisal and hold a licence to practice plus have indemnity insurance. You would be linked to us on a contractual basis, we do remunerate for each appraisal and cover travel expenses. We do not state a minimum or maximum appraisal that we assign per appraiser per month, and usually ask the appraiser before assigning any appraisees to them.
We offer regular training for our appraisers as well as full support and guidance.
Currently we are looking to cover Cambridge, and surrounding areas, Newcastle upon Tyne, and surrounding areas, also Chester, Birmingham, Leicester and Leeds. We usually consider around 1.5hrs up to 2hrs max radius for travel.
Some appraisees may be connected to designated bodies who use their own Appraisal tool, such as Equiniti, PreP, MyL2P, the MAG form. Whilst others may be linked to a Suitable Persons on the GMC list and others may not have a connection at all and therefore link to the GMC for their annual return process and Rev-12.
At Miad Healthcare we have been running Regional days for the last few years, covering key subjects including New Appraiser training and CESR to name but a few.
Due to demand, and changes within the NHS for cost effective training for individuals, our regional days have expanded and we are now able offer a much wider range of subjects, and now hold 100+ a year in central locations including London, Birmingham and Manchester.
We have a number of new Training Consultants with specialist skills that have enabled us to expand our portfolio to include courses such as Medical Law and Ethics, Resilience and Mindfulness and Serious Incident Investigations.
There are many benefits in running these types of regional day events. Clinicians are often happier if possible, to train away from their place of work, as this is then more protected/focused time, and offers the opportunity to network with like-minded delegates from other organisations. The majority of our regional days also come with an e-learning element, increasing the CPD points obtained from the day, and allowing for reflective reading and resources after the face to face training.
As well as our core regional days, we are also happy to work in conjunction with trusts and organisations that only have a small number of doctors that may need training in a specific area but would rather have the course run onsite. We can work with you to market your course, and to fill up existing spaces with delegates from the local area – thus saving your organisation both money and time as Miad Healthcare will run the management, organisation and administration of these local events.
So, whether you are an individual that requires training that is currently not being run by your organisation, or you are an organisation that needs a way of training an individual or small group of delegates – we can help.
We have updated our booking system, and you can now view full information on each course, check available dates and locations and book and pay online to secure your place.
Do let us know if there are any topics that you think may have value when run regionally, or if you are an organisation that would like to book training using our regional approach.
Earlier this week we held our first Revalidation Managers’ Event at the Millenium Hotel in Mayfair, to an audience of over 60 delegates from all across the UK.
With some fabulous speakers from the GMC, NHS England, Capsticks, International SOS and NCAS it was a full day of excellent presentations and topical subjects, and the attendees had a good chance to network, both at their tables, and over a lovely lunch provided by the hotel.
There were group discussions around the Pearson Review and the challenges and planning required when implementing the recommendations, case studies on how to improve the flow of information between organisations, and presentations on topics including managing concerns and revalidation systems.
It was a packed schedule, and we very much appreciate the early morning start and effort that everyone made to attend. We would like to say thank you to all of the delegates, and to our presenters, for making it such a successful day, and one that we hope to repeat in in the future.
‘As always, an amazing day. I now have 2 pages of to do actions- great!’
‘I have to say, I was very impressed at the quality of the event you did! Very glad I attended’
‘I just wanted to say thank you for a well organised course in a very pleasant venue/ location – a lot of which I found useful and will try to put into practise’
We have had a fantastic response and now only have a few places left, and with external speakers from NHS England, the GMC, NCAS and International SOS as well, as it’s going to be a really packed and informative day. We have delegates attending from all across the country, and from both the NHS and Independent sector, so a good mixture of knowledge, and a great chance to network with colleagues.
The outline of the day has been created based on current and upcoming issues that will affect organisations across the board, and the main objectives are as follows:
We look forward to seeing you there, and will certainly post the feedback and some photos of the day after the event.
