Job Planning

Job Planning is a contractual obligation for all Career Grade Medical Staff, i.e. Consultants, Associate Specialists and Specialty Doctors/Dentists.

Job Planning is required to be undertaken annually, is a prospective process and should determine new ways of working rather than reinforcing existing working practices. The Job Plan should set out the doctor’s duties, responsibilities and objectives for the coming year.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Job Planning Policy provides information for both doctors and managers to assist with the Job Planning process. This policy can be accessed here.


E-Job Plan:

Doctors within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde have access to E-Job Plan (EJP) – an electronic Job Planning system which records all types of activity along with the frequency the activity is undertaken and calculates the number of PAs within the weekly plan. 

The system is web-based and you can access it from wherever you have an internet connection.  Doctors are provided with a log-in which gives them access to a Job Plan “Wizard”.  The Wizard consists of 8 pages similar to the paper Job Plan documentation, and once completed, the Job Plan can be printed or exported to “Word” to allow upload to SOAR.  The system also allows the Job Plan to be signed-off electronically by both the doctor and the Medical Manager. Guidance designed to assist the doctor with logging in, setting preferences and populating/ signing off their job plan can be found here
