What is the training process like?
Is training provided?
Training and set up for Push Doctor’s NHS Service takes up to 3 hours, and is also completed remotely. The only previous experience you will need is using Systmone/TPP and EMIS platforms (experience of using both is highly desirable). Training is comprised of:
- A complete run-through of Push Doctor’s video platform, which you will use to connect patients.
- Laptop set up
- Clinical outcomes training
You can then use Systmone/EMIS remotely to complete the consultations in the same way you would in a GP surgery. You will also have to complete medical onboarding – a process which can take up to an hour – to ensure you are fully prepared to consult safely on the platform.
Do I need all documents in order to receive training?
Yes, aside from your updated insurance certificate, enabling you to get started as soon as possible.
Does the training need to be completed in one go?
