Affiliated Practice Scheme
This allows sessional doctors an opportunity to approach a practice, where they are already working, and request that they become involved in clinical governance activity within that practice.
Acceptance of sessional doctors onto the scheme is at the discretion of the practice.
We now have a List of Practices interested in this scheme.

Payment for Appraisal
From 1 April 2016, sessional doctors are required to claim payment for their appraisal. This payment will be made according to the doctor’s status on the day of the appraisal discussion (not the status on 1 April of any given year, as was previously the case). The payment must be claimed within 6 weeks of the date of appraisal. Please see below for further information:
Board’s Guidance for Managing CDs by Primary Care Prescribers
It is recommended that all sessional doctors review this information and ensure best practice in their management of controlled drugs.
