Practice Nurse Forum- Important Update.
As a committee we are all very excited (as I hope you are) that the future holds an exciting platform for practice nurses working within Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG. There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes to ensure the success of the forum.
The organising committee are committed to the forum meetings being driven by what you want, so if you have any ideas please let us know.
We are delighted to have launched our Practice Nurse Forum with our conference on 10 October 2018 at Trinity Park, 2.15pm - 5pm.
Our agenda for October had an educational theme where we welcomed the Primary Care Development Manager Julie White from the Primary Care Training Hub and Louise Smith from Macmillan Cancer unit at Ipswich Hospital. The final session was aimed at thinking how we can be responsive and creative to help us develop and change practice!

Sharing Best Practise - discussion and support
The aim of the Ipswich and East Practice Nurse Forum meetings is to create an environment where you feel supported to exchange best practise; share/learn together through access to relevant educational updates; as a resource for networking and peer support and serve as a platform to create a strong empowered practice nurse presence within Ipswich.
It is essential that we receive your feedback on the events, so we would ask you to please complete the online evaluation document; once completed you will receive your attendance certificate.
In addition there is also a link to a personal reflective document, which reflects the requirements for your NMC revalidation.
