23 March 2011, London, UK - Zircadian today announces a new partnership with Miad UK which will make the processes of appraisal, revalidation and job planning easier for doctors and dentists across the NHS. As a result of the new partnership, users of Zircadian’s systems will now find information about Miad’s training packages within Zircadian’s Consultant Portal, via the new ‘e-Learning’ tab, alongside the tabs for e-Appraisal, e-360 and e-JobPlan. This means that trusts seeking specialist training that corresponds precisely to their job planning and appraisal software (and which is delivered by the leading experts) can now access this quickly and easily from their one-stop Zircadian Consultant Portal.

Dr Henry Carleton, Managing Director of Zircadian, commented “Under this arrangement NHS trusts and individual doctors will benefit from the best of both worlds – expert software coupled with expert training in the key areas of job planning, appraisal and revalidation.”

Alan Wills, Head of NHS Development at Miad, said “With products that are so complementary we can now collectively offer busy clinicians a one-stop shop for their training and other software needs within the all-important areas of appraisal, revalidation and job planning. This is a very exciting development for us and, we hope, for doctors and dentists throughout the NHS.”

Zircadian is the leading supplier of medical workforce management software for NHS doctors. The company provides online ranges of solutions for both junior and senior doctors. The Consultant Portal, Zircadian’s suite of software for consultants and SAS doctors, includes systems to manage annual appraisal, 360 appraisal and job planning.

Miad specialises in providing NHS-dedicated training and consultancy services to doctors, dentists and NHS managers. By blending expert knowledge of the key issues affecting the NHS with the latest developments in learning Miad offers a comprehensive range of training solutions for healthcare professionals.

Miad already provides a number of training courses in the area of appraisal and revalidation and these complement Zircadian’s existing e-Appraisal and e-360 software solutions perfectly. Miad is also in the process of developing a new job planning e-learning programme for both clinical directors and clinicians and this will provide a useful accompaniment to Zircadian’s e-JobPlan software solution.
