Congratulations to our NCL Healthcare Assistants!
On 31st January 2024, NCL Training Hub held a graduation event for 19 Healthcare Assistants (HCA's) who successfully completed the Introduction to GP Training Programme. This was the third cohort of training delivered by NCL TH, targeting new HCA's working across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, and Islington.
The course began in May 2023 and covered a range of topics including Care Certificate, Hypertension, and Diabetes and included monthly peer support sessions facilitated by Saloni Gaglani, Camden TH Borough Nurse Lead and Muna Omar, Senior Project Officer at NCL Training Hub, who were both fundamental contributors to the success of the programme.
The aim of the programme was to improve HCAs clinical understanding and to allow for better and more targeted patient care and improve the detection of chronic diseases in general practice. The initiative aligns with the wider workforce development strategy, which is increasing capacity across general practice by creating skilled teams to work alongside GPs to improve and enhance the care given to patients.
Once again, we want to congratulate the HCA's for their hard work and dedication throughout the course.
