The 'Preparing for an Influenza Pandemic' module has recently been updated, following the recent pandemic declaration for COVID-19. If you have taken this module within the last 3 years your certificate will remain valid; however, with the evolving news regarding COVID-19, you may wish to retake the new version.
The Infection Control (Clinical and Non-Clinical) modules have recently been offline for maintenance and have now been re-released on the eLearning suite. Following an annual review, there are many changes reflected in the clinical content. We recommend that, although current certificates remain valid, anybody requiring clinical infection control as part of their mandatory training should complete the module that is now available on the system.

We have taken the decision to hold a training and education afternoons on 9 July - online. ESNEFT respiratory consultant, Jonathan Douse will be joining us to share Covid-19 learning and how we can help our respiratory patients in primary care.
We will also host a Primary Care Nurse forum, Care Navigator session, Prescribing session for all, Pharmacist Network and more. Details of how to join will be shared nearer the time.
We continue to monitor the situation with regard to future practice education afternoons and will keep you appraised of any changes to future events.
Dates for upcoming training and education afternoons are listed below:
All afternoon sessions start 1pm for 2.15pm start, and finish by 6pm at the latest.
There are a number of courses and training opportunities provided by the CCG and external partners for anyone working in GP practice. Click on the relevant page link on the left to find out the training available to you.
The monthly educational meetings in protected time are designed to bring at least some of your professional development back into the daytime.
Our aim is to provide you with high-quality learning and an opportunity to network with friends and colleagues, old and new.
We appreciate that a half day practice closure is not always feasible. However, if you cannot attend a particular event at Trinity Park, your practice can take advantage of part of the afternoon closure to do some in-house training. We also use the afternoon closures to support 'mandatory' training for your staff and arrange events as per our published timetables.
