All consultants are expected to take part in the on-call rota, which due to being low frequency and supported by a full trainee and a registrar rota is remunerated at 1%. Opportunities do exist for consultants to “act down” on to the registrar rota to cover gaps and absences, which is well remunerated.

Opportunities exist within the trust for Doctors to help develop mental health services in Uganda with the Gulu Sheffield mental health partnership. Staff working in SHSC have access to a unique opportunity to travel to Uganda with the partnership and work with Mental Health teams in Africa.
