Surgery Closures

Staff Training  –  Protected Learning Time (PLT)

The practice closes on 10 afternoons each year for Protected Learning Time, allowing essential time to allow the whole practice to come together to discuss recent guidance, protocols and practice business.

It is also an opportunity for all the staff to undertake obligatory training such as fire safety, basic life support, data protection, etc. and for the clinicians to progress with their continued professional development.

The dates scheduled for 2020 are:

  • Wednesday 16th September
  • Thursday 15th October
  • Tuesday 24th November

Both sites of the practice will be closed from 12:30 on these days. Whenever the surgery is closed, the telephone line is diverted to the out of hours service.

Please note that due to the Covid-19 crisis staff training PLT won’t take place until further notice.
