Where there is health or behavioural concerns, TRaMS can provide details of how to seek the help and advice of an occupational health and/or an occupational psychologist. Please note, charges for these services will have to be paid directly by the registrant.
The TRaMS programme has a pool of trained mentors available throughout Scotland who assist the TRaMS team in providing mentoring and support to those undertaking remediation.
The mentors will assist with the PDP outcomes which have been agreed in advance. Mentors or workplace supervisors appointed by the GDC or Medico-Legal Defence Organisations do not form part of the NES TRaMS process.
The TRaMS programme is not funded by the NHS and therefore the costs of TRaMS support must be met by the registrant and must be paid in full in advance according to estimates that will be provided. However, NES will provide a time-limited initial meeting with the TRaMS Adviser, free of charge.
Any request for support will be reviewed by the TRaMS team, after the initial meeting with the TRaMS Adviser, and after seeking input from other organisations where appropriate, before a decision on acceptance can be given.
A Personal Development Plan is a structured document, created by an individual to allow them to reflect upon their own learning, clinical performance and any difficulties they may be aware of, and to help them plan for their personal, educational and career development.
