There were two key developments deployed:
1) Recognition of Trainer (RoT) forms for Primary Care (GP) users
Previously this development was only for Secondary Care trainers, but following further consultation, we have extended this function to GPs as well. However, please note the following requirements:
For further clarification, please visit the Scottish Trainers Framework section on the Scotland Deanery website: https://www.scotlanddeanery.nhs.scot/trainer-information/scottish-trainer-framework/
2) Amendments to Clinical Academic forms
We have amended the Clinical Academic forms to include a separate section for Objectives.
Administrators please note, we have also made it so you no longer have to have a co-Appraiser assigned to enable the Clinical Academic forms, i.e. if the Appraiser and Co-Appraiser is the same person, just assign them as main Appraiser, and tick the tick box to enable the forms.
## Further IT development
There will be one further development project which should be concluded by end of October, with a view to deploying in the first week of November. This work will be to support and facilitate the Recognition of Trainer processes. We will confirm a definitive deployment date nearer the time.
My thanks once again for your patience as we work through the IT development.
