Training dates 2017

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.

Why attend? 

  • Consultant-led educational topics
  • Development workshop done in a speed-dating format in small groups
  • Direct feedback to the commissioners
  • Networking with colleagues
  • Fun and interactive
  • Prioritise education for the benefit of patients
  • Downloadable resources from the monthly events

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. 

The next education afternoon is:

Wednesday 4 October 2017:

1.00 - 2.15 Lunch
1.15 - 4.45 Suicide prevention training (for practice nurses)
2.15 – 3.15 4 x 15min speed dates - topics:

  • Respiratory
  • Mental Health

3.30 – 4.00 BREAK
4.00 – 5.00 Clinical lecture : Spinal / MSK
