Job planning is a vital part of both the consultant and SAS contracts and this session is specifically aimed at those in, or contemplating, a role in medical management where co-ordinating job plans is crucial to the efficiency – and harmony – of any department.
The course will not only look at the intricacies of job planning within the contracts, but will go beyond the numbers to look at team service planning, handling difficult conversations and basic negotiation skills as well as considering how we gather evidence and record job plans.
Delegates will spend time looking at the links between capacity planning and individual job plans and practicing some of the skills needed in agreeing job plans as well as how to prepare for mediation if required. In addition, some time will be spent discussing the importance of medical managers including time for their additional responsibilities within their own job plans.
The sessions will be led by BMA local advisers with experience of dealing with job planning at all levels and are free to all medical managers.
