What to expect from your clinic
An adequate setup and orientation
- A room with equipment (variable, depending on the nature of the clinic)
- Resources, these may also be provided by your college
- Orientation checklist (see GPSA’s orientation checklist for an example of what to expect)
- Practice processes
- Medicolegal dimensions.
Ensure your payslips are provided and check them to make sure they are accurate.
“Payslips have to be given to an employee within 1 working day of payday, even if an employee is on leave” – Fair Work.
Your leave balances do not need to be on the payslip, however, you should be allowed to access this information at any point.
Remember, anything billed to your provider number is your responsibility. The practice has a legal responsibility to provide you with your patient billings. Practice software can demonstrate these billings in real-time. Ensure that you are on top of this early!
