Shift practice and rota
The rota is EWTD compliant.
SHOs do one week of nights (split into two blocks of three and four nights) with a resident consultant or middle tier doctor every eighth week.
Registrars do five nights from Thursday to Monday every six weeks, with the other two nights being covered by a resident consultant. Both tiers do one in eight weekend days.
All other clinical experience during the working week is between the hours of 8am and 8.30pm on a shift basis.
