New Sexual Violence Therapies Service: Avon and Somerset Sexual Violence Consortium was the new provider of the sexual violence psychological therapies service in the county from 1st June. The service provides essential support and treatment for people of all ages who have survived rape or serious sexual assault. The Consortium is a group of local specialist service providers made up of Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support, with Bristol-based charities Womankind and The Green House. For more details about the new service, see this article or email firstname.lastname@example.org
PrescQIPP E-Learning Course: Please see this letter about this on-line course which comes strongly recommended for nonclinical staff involved in repeat prescribing. Caroline Taylor, a prescribing technician at the Medicines Management Directorate of the CCG, has completed it and is willing to be the first point of contact for practice staff on this and other PrescQipp resources. email@example.com
GMC Consultation on patient feedback for appraisal/revalidation: GMC is consulting on changes to its guidance on how doctors should collect and reflect on patient feedback. GMC Consultation site.
Child Health Immunisations: The Child Health Information Service (CHIS) is changing the way childhood immunisation appointments are made so parents have more choice and practices more control over clinics. The attached leaflet explains those changes. Some practices already work in this way and the process for them remains the same.
A survey on the deployment of paramedics in primary care: a study on how paramedics are deployed in primary care is being conducted by Dr Sarah Voss of the University of West of England, Bristol and Dr Matthew Booker of The University of Bristol. It has been approved by the University of West of England Research Ethics Committee. It typically takes less than 10 minutes and is strictly anonymous. You will be asked a few of questions about your experiences or perceptions of paramedics working in primary care services. All responses are entirely confidential, we will not collect any personally identifiable information and no responses from individual participants will be identified. For more information contact either Sarah Voss firstname.lastname@example.org or Matthew Booker email@example.com
