What do we offer?

Sessions which can be attended by your staff, to expand their knowledge and awareness of some of the common areas of general practice.

Staff attending will receive a certificate of attendance for inclusion in the Continuing Professional Development folder and for the practice records (CQC).

The first three groups of health care assistants have now completed their CARE CERTIFICATE portfolio’s and we are therefore offering to facilitate a further group.
OUR FACILITATION INVOLVES: The health care assistants attend three full day sessions which enables them to put together a portfolio of evidence claiming competency against the care certificate standards and cross referenced against the 6 Cs of nursing. We offer an external validation visit as part of the package, where we observe the HCA doing some clinical work, we review the evidence of their portfolio and discuss progress and competency with their manager and mentor. On successful completion of the scheme the HCA has a portfolio congruent with that of registered nurses’ revalidation portfolios. They will have an action plan for the next 12mths focusing on one further skill development, one knowledge-based development and one resource development. The portfolio is a living document with a lifespan of three years which they are encouraged to keep updating.
