Avon Health Education

We are delighted that we have been able to review and further develop the Avon Health Education programme.

We have published our programme from October 2020 to March 2021
At the moment we can’t have the same interaction that we have when we meet for education, though we want to ensure that there is as much interaction as possible and will certainly be encouraging questions and comments during the sessions.

We are continuing to work with consultants and a wider team of professionals to deliver educational days.

Last updated 31st January 2020

The LMC recently reviewed its Training and Education Strategy, taking into account the changes that are taking place in general practice, including the needs of the various additional professional groups that are now employed within general practice

As a result of this, the LMC has created a new training and education organisation called Avon Health Education and it will be responsible ultimately for dealing with all aspects of training and education that the LMC is involved with.

In terms of education for GPs, we are continuing to provide GP education as we have done for many years although we have also identified particular courses as being multi-disciplinary at which there will be opportunities for different groups of clinicians to learn together, which reflects what happens in modern day general practice.
 
We are offering clinicians the opportunity to attend 4 courses per annum as part of the membership fee plus, two further multi-disciplinary courses at no extra cost.
 
If you are interested in joining or booking a course please contact Mandy at mandy@almc.co.uk or 0117 9702755.
