Practice Based Medicines Coordinators

Training

Most PBMCs have now been in post for quite some time and have a good level of skill.  This is only achieved by them attending the monthly training sessions.  In order for us to support them in delivering their role they must attend this training.  Whilst appreciating that staff may not be able to attend every session, we will expect 75% attendance in any 12 month period.  Failure to achieve this will result in us reconsidering the continued participation of the practice in the scheme.  It is therefore vital that practices ensure their PBMC attends regularly so that any emergency non attendance is without risk to continued funding.  If your practice does not have a PBMC please see the job description and person spec to check whether you have anyone suitable already working at the practice who could take on this role.

Venues for training will be notified in the agenda sent out the week before training.  If you do not receive an e-mail advising you of the venue please report to the main reception on floor 7, Regent House and they will let you know where the training is taking place.
