What is the training process like?
Is training provided?
In order to become a Push Doctor GP, you will be required to undertake remote training and induction for training of the Push Doctor platform. This takes up to 3 hours and the majority can be carried out in your own time. The only previous experience you will need is using Systmone/TPP and EMIS platforms (experience of using both is highly desirable). Training and induction is comprised of:
- Walkthrough videos & reading of our platform guide
- Completion of an online assessment
- A 1-1 session with a member of the team to go over laptop setup
After your training with the Operations Team, you will also be booked in for an introductory telephone call with one of our Medical Officers. This is an opportunity for you to find out a little bit more about the Medical team and for them to find out more about you. We’ll also help answer questions you may have around some of the clinical aspects of working on the platform, such as prescribing or examination. You can then use Systmone/EMIS remotely to consult with patients in the same way you would in a GP surgery.
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?
The initial learning and assessment can be completed in your own time, as can aspects the laptop setup. However, we will still need to arrange a 1-1 session with a member of the Operations team to finish things off.
Do I need to worry about indemnity?
Will indemnity be provided?
No, you will have to check with your provider to ensure you are sufficiently covered.
How much does online indemnity cost?
This depends on the number of sessions you wish to work, so please contact your medical indemnity provider for a quote. However, as we are providing NHS appointments, work on our platform is covered by the state-backed indemnity scheme.
What hours can I work?
