How are you investing in training the next GP generation?
Major breakthrough in GP skills training video technology.
The RCGP have published figures showing the falling rates of GP Registrars passing the Clinical Skills Assessment examination.
Videoing of consultations, regularly reviewed throughout the year, is the ideal way to help develop trainees in the key areas - data management, clinical management and interpersonal skills.
Many practices struggle with difficult to use equipment, which means cameras don't get switched on, or difficult editing means footage doesn't get reviewed. And all too often patients are uncomfortable with intrusive cameras set on tripods at the end of the couch or cameras with wires running to television screens or recorders.
That's why we have developed our unique GP skills training solution, which harnesses remote CCTV monitoring technology that is more usually found in surveillance situations.
It provides a discreet solution for patients, whilst optimising review and editing capability, to ensure that your trainees derive the most from the exercise, including sound only recording - all at the flick of a simple wall switch. The system can be managed remotely in a dedicated review and edit room, or managed unobtrusively within the consulting room.

At the Orchard Practice in North-West Leicestershire, state of the art video recording technology is proving an invaluable training tool for GP registrars from across the county.
Seven consulting rooms are equipped with ceiling mounted cameras and microphones to remotely record consultations, activated by a simple wall switch. Each camera is linked back to easily edited DVD or Blu Ray recorders, housed in a review and editing suite at the practice.
"Pass rates for the RCGP's new licensing exam have crashed dramatically this year...News of the drop in pass rates came as the GMC reported 'significant concerns' over aspects of medical training following a major survey of medical trainees and trainers."
