SURGERY CLOSURE - PROTECTED LEARNING AFTERNOONS
During the afternoon of Thursday 23rd January 2020 Trinity & Bowthorpe Medical Practice will be closed from 1.00pm to participate in a protected learning afternoon. Protected learning sessions provide the opportunity for GPs and practice staff to attend staff training and updates that are vital to ensure that practices remain up-to-date on a range of subjects which underpin the healthcare provided for patients across Norwich. This is supported by NHS England and Norwich CCG.
Every practice in Norwich will be closed and ALL staff including GPs will not be available as usual during the afternoon of the training. However, Integrated Care 24 Ltd (IC24) will provide cover during the afternoon by providing telephone triage between 1.00pm and 6.30pm. Where appropriate patients will be given an appointment to see a clinician. To access this service please telephone the surgery as normal or telephone NHS 111.
The surgeries will re-open as normal the following day.
Patients will be informed of future dates on our website and in practice.
