GP Synergy has recently sent an email to rural registrars, supervisors and practice managers regarding employment arrangements for registrars who undertake Visiting Medical Officer (VMO) work as part of GP training.
The email includes two documents – the VMO FAQs and the guidance document for GP registrars and general practice training facilities on the NSW Heath Directive for Visiting Medical Officer (VMO) engagement. The second document contains a Supplemental Deed which can be annexed to the standard employment agreements between the practice and GP registrars. The deed attachment is an optional tool. You can choose to use this if you find it beneficial.
Please check your email or access the VMO employment information in GPRime, under ‘Forms, Documents and Links’. Just search ‘VMO’.
