Rota/ on call commitments
Full shift pattern with resident on call night shifts.
In any 12 month period, you do 3 x 1 month blocks of on call with a mixture of days on call and nights on call. You are free from all elective work during this time.
On calls are shared between SpRs and middle grades with middle grades doing more on call and covering elective SpR work when they are away.
SpRs are first on call day or night. SHOs are F2s to CT2s.
Epic – Addenbrooke’s is paperless (except for consent forms). There are good things about Epic but it is hard work to navigate and to get the most out of it.
The consultant teams are organised into pods; the purpose of this is to reduce the need to cross cover between specialties during leave etc and allow continuity of care for patients. Registrars are allocated formally to one or two consultants but will usually work with all consultants in their pod at various times.

Major Trauma Patients requiring Emergency Surgery
For patients that require emergency trauma surgery Monday to Friday between the hours of 08.00 to 19.00. Please contact Theatre 16 (58036) and discuss with OTU Consultant on call. These do not require discussion with the on call consultant of the day.
For patients who are out of area early repatriation needs to be identified. Once the patient is ready the TTOs and discharge letter need completing. The referral to appropriate DGH is via the Orthopaedic Registrar on call. Please get accepting consultants name and document this in notes. Once this has been agreed inform nurse in charge of ward.
For repatriations back to Addenbrooke’s the registrar on call can accept them on behalf of the Consultant on call that day and they come under that consultant.
