Training and Education Afternoons

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 22 May 2019: Safeguarding Training for all clinicians

14.00 - 16.30: Children and Adult combined Safeguarding Updates sessions including: MASH, Turning Point, Child Exploitation (Make a Change) team, Suffolk Against Gangs & Exploitation, Homelessness Reduction Act & Duty to Refer and Multi-agency Adult Safeguarding Framework 

14.00 - 16.30: FULLY BOOKED - Safeguarding Children L3 Training - Jo Hutchings, Deputy Designated Nurse Safeguarding Children and lead for Primary Care Services. Booking is essential as numbers limited. This is the same session run by Jo throughout the year at Landmark House and West Suffolk House so if you have done it, or are booked to do it, you do not need to re-do this. You can book onto this session on a different date via caroline.pyrozuk@nhs.net.

Both sessions will count towards your required hours at the relevant level.
