S12 DOCTOR TRAINING

NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Morecambe Bay Clinical Commissioning Group are looking to increase the number of doctors who are S12(2) Approved under the Mental Health Act 1983. To support this initiative the CCGs are offering developmental opportunities for GPs. These include access to specialist S12 approval training and shadowing opportunities with approved doctors.

Funded training places on a two day S12 Induction Course will be available e.g. during the autumn / winter 2018 or spring 2019. If there is sufficient interest we will explore the possibility of providing bespoke training locally. 

If you are interested in seeking specialist approval status as a S12 GP we would like to hear from you.

LOC IN THE LAKES 2019: SKILLS FOR SAFETY

Learning Organisation Collaborative (LOC) Fourth International Festival - available to book now!  #LOCintheLakes|

Date: Tuesday 5th March 2019;  Timings: 9.30am - 4.30pm; Venue: Rheged, Penrith, CA11 0DQ

The development of ‘human factors’ as the study of the interaction between people and systems - to make things safer and more productive - has a history of over 100 years.  Much is understood and a lot is intuitive - like realising you will make more mistakes when you are tired or distracted - but also a lot of this knowledge is not regularly and routinely built into healthcare.

CLIC has developed the Cumbria Production System - tools and techniques - to help our health and care system in this important work and this year, LOC in the Lakes will focus on some personal, practical skills to help you manage human factors like fatigue, boredom and distraction and also to build more resilient and safer systems, environments and teams.

Fun practical workshops and engaging keynote speakers will help you deepen your knowledge and support your capability.

Save the day and book your place now on our dedicated LOC in the Lakes 2019: Skills for Safety event page|!

URGENT & RURAL MEDICINE CARE COURSES IN CUMBRIA

Occurrence and demand for urgent care in the community, prior to hospital care, is increasing. This may be in a rural setting, but is just as likely in urban surroundings, such as GP OOH or Walk-In Centres, when delayed access to secondary care can make the clinician feel very remote and isolated.

Our courses provide GPs, doctors and other healthcare professionals a toolkit for timely recognition, diagnosis and management of conditions and situations in the urgent, pre-hospital care environment.

Teaching takes place at the UCLan National Centre for Remote and Rural Medicine (NCRRM)| near the Lake District, by a team led by Dr Stuart Maitland-Knibb, an ex-military medical officer with extensive experience in primary care & emergency medicine both in hospital and pre-hospital.
