Finding Your Feet In General Practice- 30/03/21 9.30am-12.30pm

Online training for anyone employed by a PCN under the ARRS

Every primary care network (PCN) is appointing new professionals to work in general practice through the additional roles reimbursement scheme (ARRS). There has never been a time when it is more essential that these new professionals, many of whom may not have worked in general practice before, hit the ground running.  To do this they need to understand the way GP practices operate, deepen their understanding of PCNs and how their roles support the development of multi-disciplinary teams in neighbourhoods.

In this virtual event, delegates will explore how their roles may work in and across the practices in their PCNs. The workshop will provide an overview of the context for PCNs, outline the range of ARRS roles that each PCN can recruit and explore how these roles fit within primary care and the wider health and social care agenda.

The workshop will share learning from previous schemes to support new staff to operate effectively within and across networks and work as part of integrated multi-disciplinary teams.

This 3 hour online Zoom workshop uses a blended approach of information and knowledge sharing, self-reflection and group work. The session will be interactive, allowing time for discussion and questions. It will encourage delegates to share experience and hints and tips to help embed their roles effectively into the practices making up their PCNs.

Anyone appointed by a PCN under the additional roles reimbursement scheme (ARRS) should attend.

Tuesday 30th March 2021 09.30am- 12.30pm (via Zoom)
