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

*As in previous years, the session will form part of your additional level 3 hours for both adult and children's safeguarding. Separate to this you need to complete your mandatory face to face level 3 training from the CCG Safeguarding team (to be completed when new in post and at least every 3 years thereafter). The CCG safeguarding team are now offering a 2-hour joint adult and children’s local update via Microsoft Teams, which you are expected to complete at least every 3 years once you have completed your level 3 e-learning packages. Dates for these sessions and booking details are advertised in the CCG safeguarding bulletin, which is sent to all surgeries. 
More information can be found in Safeguarding Children and Adult Level 3 Update Guidance and Opportunities.


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.





Mental Health Education

Thursday 29 April 2021, 7pm - 8.15pm via MS Teams

Personality Disorder and Complex Emotional Needs 

We are revisiting personality disorder and are delighted to welcome back Dr Lulu Preston, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, NSFT, who presented at our very first evening event back in February 2019 on How best to practically manage patients with personality disorder and the skills to achieve this in a 10 minute consultation.

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 2021/22 including domestic violence, personality disorder (or complex emotional needs), crisis pathways, gender dysphoria and much more.

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.
