EDUCTATION & TRAINING
We provide the following education & training programs. If you would like more information please contact us.
The Locum Bank is being developed by Together First. It aims to stop the leaking away of our current GPs in training to other parts of the country or world and to create an alternative to locuming for those who want a varied job after completion of training. We are developing a series of posts based partly in local practices and partly in areas of either clinical or quality improvement specialization.
New to Nursing
The New to Nursing Program is a fully funded HENCEL project brought into Barking and Dagenham. Currently, 12 nurses wishing to become practice nurses are working 2.5 days in General Practice and spending 2.5 days in training across Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge.
Clinical Pharmacists in GP Practices
The Clinical Pharmacist in GP Practices Pilot was bid for directly by us from NHS England. It has given us partial funding to employ 7 pharmacists and 3 senior pharmacists. In addition, it provides full funding for training for pharmacists to become independent prescribers and integrated parts of the practice team.
