c).    Useful Information


There are two trainee offices at the Scott Clinic, one is on the ground floor
corridor within the secure part of the building, and the other is based at the
John Parry Centre. In both offices there are telephones and access to
computers. There is also a trainee office at the Rodney Street Outpatient

Computer Facilities

There are computers within the trainee offices at the Scott Clinic base and
there is computer access at Rodney Street. At the beginning of your
placement, we will arrange for you to have access to the Scott Clinic clinical
notes and arrange Epex training if required.

Library Facilities

Trainees have access to the large library at Ashworth Hospital and to the 24
hour library at Rathbone.

Holidays and Study Leave

It is important that all the doctors on the Scott Clinic rota co-ordinate their
annual leave and study leave to ensure adequate cover. Any application for
leave should be completed in a timely manner.


You are required to notify the medical staffing department and the general
office at Scott Clinic if you are unable to work due to sickness.

Food and Drink

Food may be purchased from the catering department at Scott Clinic, which
supplies both hot meals and sandwiches. Food must be ordered before
10.00 a.m. There are also Waterfields Bakeries in Rainhill and Thatto Heath
and a large Tesco’s in Prescot. There are fridges at all sites for storing of
your own food/drinks (please label items clearly with your name and a date).


Teaching takes place on Wednesday afternoons from 1.30 p.m. at the John
Parry Centre. Dr Nathan will circulate a timetable for each term. Trainees are
expected to participate and contribute in the teaching programme. There is
joint teaching with the other secure hospitals in the North West on the third
Wednesday of the month. This is organised by the higher trainees.

Audit meetings take place on the third Thursday of the month in the
Conference Room at the Scott Clinic. The audit programme is run by Carol
Henry, Mental Health Act Administrator.


Dr Nathan is the Research Tutor for Scott Clinic. He is happy to meet with
any trainee to discuss research and is often involved in research projects
which trainees may be interested in.

d.            Induction

In addition to the Trust induction, you will receive induction within the Forensic
Psychiatry Service. This will include medical induction with your Consultant
Supervisor, a key and security induction after which you will be required to
pass a test before you are issued with keys.

On your first visit to Rodney Street you will be given a tour of the building,
made aware of car park arrangements and fire procedures as well as security

e.            On-Call

The ST3 trainee takes part in one of the Mersey Care Junior Doctor rotas.
The higher trainees participate in the Scott Clinic on-call rota together with the
five Consultants. You should ensure that you know when you are on-call and
inform the Control Staff and Lyn Graney of any changes to the on-call rota.
The Control Staff should know how to contact you on both a home land line
number and a mobile number.

Whilst on-call you will be covering the inpatient unit at Scott Clinic and
providing medical support to the community Crisis Intervention Team. You
may also be required to provide forensic psychiatry assessments to patients
in general psychiatric units, PICU’s or police custody. If you are required to
see any of the FIRT community patients, you will be accompanied by a FIR
Team member, or the patient will be brought to Scott Clinic for review. If you
are asked to see a patient with a view to admission to Scott Clinic, a member
of the nursing staff will accompany you providing the staffing levels allow this.
In the majority of these cases it will be appropriate for you to discuss the case
with the Consultant on-call prior to your assessment and before agreeing to
any action plan (including admission).

You may also be required to attend the Scott Clinic in relation to patients
secluded when a decision is being made for the patient to go into extended
