Dr Juno Jesuthasan, Training, Education and IT Lead
On 10 September we will be offering safeguarding training for primary care clinicians needing Level 3 training, starting at 2pm. These sessions will form part of your additional level 3 hours for both adult and children's safeguarding (so can be counted for both). Separate to this you need to complete your mandatory CCG level 3 session at least every 3 years which will moving forward involve some modules on e-learning as well as a virtual face to face session with the CCG Safeguarding team on local issues and case discussions.
There will also be the Annual Members Meeting at 1.30pm.
We expect to be holding education events online throughout autumn on the previously advertised dates.
Dates for upcoming training and education afternoons are listed below:
NHS England have pulled together a suite of infection, prevention and control (IPC) training resources to help staff in healthcare settings. These can be found here.
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.
This Toolkit is free of charge for all those working in health and social care and can be added to to Profiles by practice managers or system administrators.
There are some new e-learning resources, specifically for managing Coronavirus in Primary Care available on e-Learning for Health.
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.
The Children & Young People’s (CYP) Emotional Wellbeing Plan 2020 aims to establish a joined-up, family focused approach to all children, young people and families presenting with emotional, behavioural or mental health needs. As part of this plan, funded learning and development is now available to enable staff and families to have greater confidence and skills in responding to issues relating to emotional wellbeing and mental health. Training, including Mental Health First Aid, can be accessed via www.suffolkcpd.co.uk using the Multi-Agency icon on the home page. Click here to find out more about the Transformation Plan.

A series of FREE educational evenings on mental health and emotional wellbeing designed for primary care practitioners in Ipswich and east Suffolk.
We are pleased to be reinstating our evening education on a virtual online basis for the time being. Our first session covered Eating Disorders, which was a popular request from many of you who attended sessions in 2019. The recording will be available online shortly.
To allow more people to benefit from this teaching, all sessions have been filmed. The videos are accessible to any primary care staff (with the relevant password) and are are great way of doing some online learning from home. Resources from each session are also available online.
The CCG safeguarding team can arrange to provide WRAP (Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent) training to all staff within your surgery. If you are interested, please contact Caroline Pyrozuk email@example.com.
Prevent is available to all practice staff and counts towards Level 3 safeguarding children training.
