Interim FY1s 2020
FY Induction 2020
A page hosting information, materials and resources for our new interim FY1s (FiY1s), starting their positions early to help the NHS response to COVID-19.
(last updated 08-05-20)
A new teaching programme has been launched for interim FYs. This has been started by Mr Ken Stewart, consultant plastic surgeon, with support from a number of other doctors in SJH.
You can join these open teaching sessions through Microsoft Teams (you can log in using a NHS email).
These run daily at 1345-1445.
If you are on site in SJH, these run from the Lecture Theatre. We are looking for space for doctors to gather (and maintain social distancing) at our other sites, but these are designed for delivery on Teams.
You will commence your clinical posts on Wednesday 22nd April. (Borders FY1s have additional site induction prior to this from Monday 20th)
Individual rotas will be released soon however it has been agreed your rota will be 1B banded (this will include some evenings and weekend work, but no night shifts).
NES are your employers and will send you out your contract details "ASAP". Your two days of induction will be paid days of work.
Fife, Borders and SJH FYs should have been allocated accommodation if required. If you still need accommodation, contact your board contact (Ed Cos in Lothian)

As part of your induction programme, we are offering special sessions for you delivered by respiratory and anaesthetic specialists designed to cover essential knowledge and skills in looking after COVID-19 patients.
These sessions are the same that have been delivered to current NHS Lothian staff (from FYs to consultants).
Some of you will be working in COVID areas, and most will encounter this condition in the next few months of your practice.
Thanks for Dr Debbie Morley, Dr Jude Dickson and Dr James Tiernan for delivering these sessions.

This session was recorded with James Tiernan and some of the interim FY1s (all information correct as of 17-04-20).
A group of current FYs, coordinated by Dr Felix Torrance, have created this handbook for you to use. This was written and based on working in NHS Lothian pre-COVID, but some sections have been added and updated to represent the way we are currently responding. The information is primarily Lothian focused, although there are also some sections for working in NHS Borders and Fife.
