Staff Training

We put great emphasis on recruiting suitably skilled and motivated staff who will help us in delivering the best care possible for our patients.  After initial induction and training in their individual roles e.g. reception or dispensing we then have whole practice training events between1.30pm and 4.30pm once a month on a Tuesday.  These meetings allow us the opportunity to reflect on the services that we provide, to consider how we can meaningfully interpret and implement NHS innovations and reforms, to learn from situations where we feel that we could have done better (using a tool knows as Significant Event Audit) and to provide generic staff training.  Although the Pracice will still be accessible, to enable the doctors and staff to keep up to date the practice will not have any routine clinics or appointments between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on the following dates - Tuesday 10 August 2021
