BOOKING OF SHIFTS IN THE OOH DEPARTMENT
DUMFRIES AND RHINS/MACARS ROTAS ARE NOW OPEN FROM
4TH OCTOBER 2021 TO 30TH JANUARY 2022 TO ALLOW FOR BOOKINGS.
Please note the Clinical Rota for Dumfries and Rhins / Machars is open from MONDAY 4th OCTOBER 2021 to SUNDAY 30th JANUARY 2022 to allow clinicians to book shifts. Any queries with this please contact the office.
It is imperative that we work as a team on shift and identify skills sets on arrival to ensure clarity of roles and capabilities to maximise efficiency. The department expects professional behaviour at all times and fluid communications between all members of the team when on shift in accordance with the code of positive behaviour.
When working in the OOH you may be expected to review patients with possible COVID risk, you should continue to see these patients in the designated COVID Room.
You are expected to undertake Home Visits or see patients in the PCC dependent on service needs at the time of your shift. You may of course be able to discuss this with the team you are on shift with and agree duties and roles based on skill set and personal preference.
Communications Co-Ordinators oversee the co-ordination of any resource management during a shift based on needs of the service and have complete oversight of all calls for the region. Clinical staff will therefore be allocated to calls from our Communications Co-Ordinators based on availability of resource and skill set.
Out of Hours is proud to be involved in training students and other medical professionals. You may therefore have trainees attached with you on your shift. Details of the Rotas for trainees is available in the main office. If there are any questions in regards to this then please do not hesitate to contact the management team.
When working in the department can we remind all staff that patient confidentiality is paramount.
