A hard-hitting campaign was launched in Suffolk on 26th February to encourage people to give consent for their patient records to be made accessible to health and care professionals in the event of an emergency.
Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG fund vital training sessions for Practices. This means that all IESCCG Practices will be closed for half a day for these sessions.
The sessions are vital for GPs and all Practice staff to receive training so that they can continue to give the best care possible.
Our dates for training and education afternoons have been agreed as below.
All afternoon sessions start 1.15pm for 2.15pm start, and finish by 6pm at the latest.
On the above dates the surgery will be shut from 1pm until 8am the following morning.
Should you require medical advice during this time, please contact the 111 service or in the case of a medical emergency please dial 999.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It's fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals.
