A stringent process is in place to ensure that the Medical Specialist Group recruits and retains consultants of the highest possible calibre.
Applicants must hold higher qualifications as defined by the appropriate Royal College and must be on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council.
Before the recruitment process even commences, the Medical Specialist Group must apply to the Committee for Health and Social Services to replace a departing consultant or to create a new post. The HSC will review the need for that post to be filled and, if they agree that this is the case, they will be involved in the interview process.
Applicants are interviewed by a panel of Medical Specialist Group consultants, senior HSC personnel and a representative from the relevant Royal College.
Once appointed, the new consultant will be required to register with the HSC to practise in Guernsey and ongoing assessment will take place throughout their time with the Medical Specialist Group.
They will undergo annual appraisals by senior Medical Specialist Group personnel and also a ‘360 appraisal’ (assessment by staff and patients) every five years.
Their performance is also constantly monitored by a duly-appointed Responsible Officer, while they must also maintain a programme of Continuous Professional Development – keeping themselves up-to-date with new and developing methods of delivering healthcare within their particular specialty.
When the Medical Specialist Group needs to employ locum doctors to cover absence of permanent consultants (training, leave, illness, sabbatical), similar high standards are required.
The Medical Specialist Group also ensures that its nurses hold good qualifications and that they too undergo annual appraisals and maintain a programme of CPD.
