Procedures for Trainees in Practice

Before the Trainee starts

When a Trainee is coming to the practice there are various procedures that need to be followed.

  • Before a Trainee can be added to the Performers List and be paid they must contact the relevant Lead Employer for further information.  Entry onto the Performers List can be a long process with a substantial amount of paperwork to complete.  Therefore, trainees must start this process early and applications must be submitted before the start of their practice placements, otherwise they will not be able to start.
  • Information about DBS checks (formally CRB checks)  Trainees need to liaise with their Lead Employer regarding DBS checks
  • Check a GPST's status on the Medical Performers List
  • It is the trainee's responsibility to ensure they are on the Performers List and they they have Medical Indemnity cover. They must inform SBS immediately of any changes to their circumstances that might affect the Performers List e.g. when they rotate into a trust post; when they complete training.
