CORE CLINICAL SKILLS FOR GENERAL PRACTICE BASED HEALTH CARE ASSISTANTS

As the workload of GP surgeries increases, the role of HCAs is expanding and developing.

Surveys indicate that the number of HCAs in general practice is rising while the number of registered nurses is declining.

Of course with greater responsibility comes greater risk. Proper training is vital to ensure safe and effective practice.

We are very pleased to launch our new 2-day 'Core Clinical Skills for GP based HCA' which has been developed in line with the recommendations made within the RCGP General Practice Foundation HCA Competency Framework document.

All course attendees are provided with a full colour copy of our ‘Core Clinical Skills for HCA’s’ workbook.

Competency Assessment

All course attendees will be provided with a Competency Assessment Took based upon the recommendations set out in the RCGP document but SPECIFIC to the core clinical skills covered in this 2-day course. 

 

Certificate of Attendance

A certificate of attendance will be issued at the end of day 2.
