OOH Guidance

No set time. However need to tick off all capabilities and clinical experience groups per year and OOH can bring in experiences not available in placement (for example someone doing Gynae and Psych may not have Paeds exposure that year, so OOH can bring in that experience).

Some OOH evidence needed each year.

BH guidance

Please directly check with SLE via email for latest. (If you get a bounce back email – it is because the addresses keep changing from time to time! You may also get a bounce back email saying – if regarding leave email ‘x’ – please do that).
