Practice Nurses

The QNI (Queen’s Nursing Institute) has launched a free online learning resource, ‘Transition to General Practice Nursing’ to support nurses who are new to general practice, which can also be used to support revalidation, since it has a cloud based portfolio, and student nurses in GP placements.

More than 1,200 people have already accessed the resource since it was launched on 18 January and the feedback has been very positive. The QNI is committed to updating this as required and plan a full review in two years. Read the QNI GPN report.

Medical Services Training – Medical terminology and related topics for non-clinical staff

Medical Services Training has provided training in medical terminology and related topics for non-clinical staff up and down the country for many years working with CCG’s, LMC’s and individual Practices. Our one and two day courses are all aimed at non-clinical staff and cover areas such as medical terminology, understanding prescriptions, understanding test investigations and summarising notes & QOF.  We typically work with up to 15 people at a time and our standard charges are £850 per day + expenses and VAT.

We provide all the course materials and delegates receive a certificate of attendance upon completion of the course.

In previous years we worked very closely with PCT’s including north Lancs and Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. In recent years since the reorganisation we have been putting on ‘open courses’ at the CCG offices in Wesham and  then advertising to Practices in the locality.  Although these have been very well received by local Practices they can be delivered in a more cost effective manner as in-house sessions for the local Practices. Elsewhere in the country such in-house courses are either arranged by the CCG or in some cases the LMC. Is this the type of training the LMC would be keen to provide for Practice staff? Our courses will provide job-specific training thus enabling participants to increase their competency and confidence in their day to day role.
