|Also this month…|
NHS England’s funding for the Clarity appraisal toolkit has ceased, if you are not continuing with it you will lose all access to the system and stored information on 31 March 2016. There is no requirement to use any particular vehicle for your appraisal, but GPs intending to use an alternative supplier are advised to inform their appraisers well before their next appraisal date, and check the mechanism for transferring previous appraisal data from Clarity.
Learn more about how to get involved with the election process, including a message from Dr Michelle Drage, our CEO, on why you should. We are keen to hear from all GPs including partners, employed and freelancers who are interested in standing for election.
Apprenticeship scheme – a first-hand view on what makes it great
Apprentice Joel Carmody writes about his experiences working at St Peter’s Medical Centre in Harrow, in particular how he has joined a caring, compassionate workforce that wants to help others.
NHS England Friends and Family Test support changes
NHS England’s one-on-one FFT support is ending in March 2016. There will be events through the month as part of a final push to support practices in meeting this contractual obligation.
Training and development events update
We run a range of training events for GPs and their practice teams. The recent Infection Control Update and ICO Data Protection workshops were both well attended and provided valuable training.
Our workforce survey findings ran in the Observer on 14 February 2016, with a front page trail in the print edition. Our CEO, Dr Michelle Drage was interviewed for the lead item on the BBC London TV news on the same day. The survey results were also reported in Pulse, GPOnline, Practice Business, This is Local London and Michelle was interview by London Live News and BBC Radio London’s Eddie Nestor show (02:37:30 into this clip, available until mid-March 2016).
