Training & Education

Training and Education

In early 2018, our Training and Education scheme was born, clinicians who join the scheme are eligible to attend any of the training events for that year.  Previous event topics have included Sepsis, Family Planning, COPD and Vulnerable Health. All clinicians are welcome to attend the events including those outside our member organisations eg. Community pharmacists, District Nurses, locum GPs are encouraged to join.

If you are interested in learning more about this scheme, please contact us.

Our Training Team

MKGP have a Training and Education Team who meet every 6 weeks to review the opportunities we can provide to our members.  We believe that additional training is vital to development and welcome suggestions from our members for further training opportunities. We also look at recent referral data and look to target areas where improvements to services can be made via additional training.

The Training and Education Team includes:

 

Dr Thao Nguyen

Dr Richard Simpson

Laura Lucas

Rae Sinclair 

Hannah Greenwood 

 

The training team work hard to secure training or funding for our members via various different sources. We work in collaboration with various companies to deliver smaller training afternoons and have connections to organise specialised training where identified.  

 

To keep our members up to date we have a training and education calendar on our internal website, this is updated regularly with a range of relevant opportunities for all job roles.
