The Health Care Assistant Training Programme


In October 2015 Londonwide LMCs launched the accredited GP HCA Training Programme.

This course is for Health Care Assistants (HCAs) new to General Practice. The GP HCA Programme is a blended learning programme that has 10 online modules, complemented by two face to face Taught Days taught by experienced nurse educators. The course is competency based to allow maximum transfer of theory to practice with the HCAs gaining maximum practical skills during a six month period.

The Programme is academically accredited by Middlesex University. Upon successful completion, students will be awarded 20 credits at level 4 and will have a broad understanding of their role in a General Practice setting and be able to carry out tasks related to their role competently. Students can sign up to the programme at any point and access the online modules. The Taught Days are hosted throughout the year at Londonwide LMCs' offices. The first HCA Taught Day 1 is on Wednesday 18 November 2015.

The cost of the six month course is £850 + VAT.
