Return to practice
The main objective of this policy is to ensure a personal development plan is in place for the returnee, taking into account the length of time away from work, previous levels of experience and essential skills and competencies for their specific area of practice. This will ensure the returnee can be reinstated into the FPH’s CPD scheme.
Examples of reasons for prolonged absence from the workplace include, but are not limited to:
- Maternity/paternity/adoption leave
- Health – physical and mental
- Sabbatical leave/approved career break
- Carers leave
- Charitable work overseas
- Suspension by Trust or GMC
