  1. Thanks for that,
  2. That's a shame. You can still write some helpful tips.
  3. Hi Steve, I'm great, how are you? I've tried Athona three times in the last five years, most recently a month ago, and the bureaucracy I came across is only surpassed by MEDACS and HOLT. In fact, even these two have a bit more of a personalized approach nowadays.
  4. Why delete the thread because one poster comes across as prejudiced and will only accept those with ccst and teaching experience? Perhaps you could post some of your insight into what's needed to pass here for all to read? Most of those who pass exams to that, whether they then offer paid tuition or not.
  5. If one is qualified to teach then I suppose they are entitled to be payed.
  6. Any update on current agencies with good psychiatry jobs?
  7. I've not done DoLS but I know it pays similar to MHA, cc £180. Standard capacity assessments that solicitors ask for are £100-200. I don't do court reports. Appraisal work is paid as well. I've not done it, before you ask.
  8. Sure, but it also means that other psychiatrists can try for those jobs as well. I am pleasantly surprised that pharmaceutical companies are paying that much, I thought it was less than clinical work pays.
  9. Yes, court reports are more prevalent in forensic psychiatry. LPoA, wills, and DoLS capacity assessment more in Old Age. Training for DoLS can be online: http://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/deprivation-of-liberty-safeguards/ To get the work ask a friendly social worker who the DoLS Lead is in your area and let them know you're available, For LPoA, let the solicitors know you're available. They will refer to you if they can't get the GP or sector psychiatrist to do it.
  10. You're right Eve, I suppose everyone is following market forces and pricing will depend on those. I wonder if a question bank would sell better if it is marketed directly as such (ie Question Bank) and not an app. Apps tend to be cheap, or even free. Perhaps starting of with a low price/free for the app with a limited number of questions, and then offering "in app purchases" would be a way to reach more potential buyers?
  11. Has anyone done this or is considering doing? https://fflm.ac.uk/exams/dlm/
  12. There's nothing demoralizing about £250 000. Which company was that?
  13. I think it would be a good idea. I'm interested, but I've not used whatsapp. I have Hangouts, Skype, Zoom and Telegram.
  14. It's odd that the OP would raise such questions and then not be around to discuss and help clarify they meant. Were they present and witnessed what was happening, or did they hear from the patient and/or consultant in question?
  15. DoLS, LPoA, wills, court reports. What do you do for CASC courses?
