This new area, Supporting Documentation/CPD, allows you to record and reflect on relevant pieces of evidence that you may have highlighted from your clinical reviews or PDP. It also allows you to provide evidence and share brief summative reflections of your CPD evidence of reading / reflections on learning events:
By separating this from the reflections on clinical work, we are supporting a degree of separation between WPBA and the appraisal functions of the GP Trainee Portfolio. Basic life support, Safeguarding Certification, Unscheduled / Out of Hours attendance should be appropriately recorded here:
Other learning such as eLearning, tutorials, courses/certificates, lectures and reading can appropriately be recorded in the CPD area. Trainees may want to note that entries which are purely documentation of reading or of doing an online course are not Workplace Based Learning Activities.
Unscheduled urgent care (UUC) / Out of Hours (OOH)
All Trainees need to get experience in UUC/ OOH and evidence of your attendance at these sessions needs to be included in your Supporting Documentation section.
Some areas of the UK expect the number of hours/sessions undertaken in the UUC / OOH setting to be documented as part of your GP trainee contract. In this case, a summary table should be completed and uploaded as a separate Supporting Documentation entry before your final ARCP.
