Please note there are no education events in January or August.

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 or online, 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. 

After every training afternoon we ask for your feedback and your ideas. This is to help us in planning future training sessions that will be of greatest benefit. In 2019, we received some our most favourable feedback, thank you; you can read a summary of feedback for the whole of 2019. We continue to strive to provide high quality teaching.


If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please note that these events are NOT sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry: CCG Policy on relations with the pharmaceutical industry.

Mental Health Education

The next Mental Health education evening is on 19th May at 7pm on the topic of Holistic Mental Health approaches; how social prescribing can support you and your clients. View Flyer for more details

This is part of a series of FREE educational evenings on mental health and emotional wellbeing designed for primary care practitioners across Suffolk. We have developed a full Programme for 2022/23.

To allow more people to benefit from this teaching, all sessions have been recorded. The videos are accessible to any primary care staff (most do not need a password) and are great way of doing some online learning from home. Resources from each session are also available online.
