Leaving Shifts

The board has head reports of some doctors leaving their GatDoc shifts during their duty. We are aware that it is common practice for one doctor to leave a little early if a shift is quiet, however it is not acceptable for doctors to leave to attend to other matters during their duties. We would therefore like to remind doctors that they should not book other duties or standbys when they are scheduled to work for GatDoc.

CQC Registration

GatDoc has registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). As part of the requirements of registration we have been developing polices for most aspects of GatDoc’s operation and you will find them appearing on the website over the next few weeks. Duty doctors, I’m afraid, will be expected to be familiar with these policies.
