Nurse training and education events

Forum for non-medical prescribers 

Suffolk GP Federation commenced a forum for non-medical prescribers in March 2019 for GP Fed employees and Practice Nurse NMPs as part of the wider Fed family.

The main purpose of the forum is networking as NMPs are often spread out geographically.  However, it is also hoped that it will assist with CPD, peer support and revalidation.  Guest speakers are to be invited on topics identified by the forum members.

The meetings will be held at Stow Lodge Centre, Chilton Way, Stowmarket IP14 1SZ and the final date for 2019 is Monday 21 October 2019: 9am – 1pm

Practice Nurse Cancer Course

Cancer is becoming a long term condition, with practice prevalence’s rapidly catching up with diabetes. For this reason there is an increasing trend for some of the long term consequences of cancer to be picked up by the nursing workforce where possible. This course is aimed at giving practice nurses the confidence, communication and signposting skills to undertake this work. It is free but does involve three days out of the practice during the six months course. It receives good feedback and is well received with most nurses updating the practice cancer structure, having completed the course. View Flyer for more information.
