Virtual Group Consultations briefing session – (A General Practice Nurse 10 Point Plan Initiative)

Dates: 21st or 23rd July

Times: 1-2 pm

(only required to attend ONE session)

The Experience Led Care Programme have been commissioned by NHSE/I to run a national training scheme for Virtual Group Clinics (formerly Group Consultations). We are pleased to be able to host two briefing sessions introducing Virtual Group Clinics

As you may have been aware Kent and Medway was planning a training programme for practices interested in delivering group consultations in April and many of you had signed up to the programme. Unfortunately the programme was paused as a result of COVID -19, - but now we have a fantastic new opportunity to roll it out virtually

Following attendance at the briefing session practice teams can go on to join the 2.5 hours training. Details of this will be conveyed later. As part of a GPN 10 Point Plan initiative, local participants can receive expert support to start their own groups.

The Briefing is open to GPNs, Practice & Network Managers, PCN clinical directors, GPN leads and others who have interest in finding out more about virtual groups clinics across Kent and Medway such as Commissioners. The sessions will discuss the benefits to patients and staff and the practicalities of running groups. These sessions will also be recorded for people to view later if they cannot join live

To register your place to attend on one of the briefing sessions, please email either Adenike Omotayo or Sharon Lee to confirm your attendance. The sessions will be run via MS Teams

Reminder email with joining link with be shared to those registered a few days prior to the events.
