Each portfolio will be under the supervision of a consultant and the trainee will be expected to issue a report of their activities by the end of the 6 months. They will have dedicated and protected time rostered to allow for the provision of these duties. Non-clinical time is not to be used for exam preparation.

(Monday-Friday). This will be between 2:00pm and 4:30pm.

 Evening Senior Registrars/Registrars will take hand over from morning Senior Registrar/Registrar during that period and then attend handover and complete their clinical shift. The later finish will allow for more provision of clinical duties to help relieve the burden of the Night staff.

 There will not always be non-clinical time on an evening shift particularly if there is no senior registrar on the day shift. Some of this time will have teaching duties attached.

 The Senior Registrar/Registrar should report to the day CED consultant on arrival and will be contactable at all times if clinical duties required.

 The Senior Registrar/Registrar will be rostered for Night shifts as per the staffing requirements of the CED. It is anticipated that this would be less than other registrars but can’t be guaranteed.

All rostering and non-clinical time can be reviewed at any time dependant on departmental needs.


 The Senior Registrar/Registrar will be assessed by the Directors of Emergency Medicine Training, as per all ACEM trainees. Their non-clinical portfolios will be under the governance of individual consultants within the ED, specific to the relevant non-clinical area and reported to both the director of clinical services and directors of Emergency Medicine Training.
