GPST3s are expected to have experience in all aspects of patient care. This includes some experience in extended hours surgeries. The Deanery does not specify the number of extended hours that a GPST3 must work. However ST3s must have some exposure to extended hours. This does not mean that the GPST3 should do an equivalent share to the partners in the practice, nor does it mean that they should be part of the extended hours rota. It is expected that Trainers will take a pragmatic approach. Please ensure that the working week of the GPST3 is compliant with the European Working Time Directive (EWTD).
