Practice Nurse Newsletter - December 2021
Written by Anna Davis and Gemma Bird 

Brief word from us 

We have come to the end of a really challenging year, trying to negotiate and embrace different ways of working, moving goal posts, additional vaccines, public expectations and for some, personal difficulties on varying scales and it’s about to ramp up again. We hope you do achieve some down time this month to re-charge batteries and will be setting up an offer of restorative clinical supervision in the Spring. 
 
We have a very varied, busy role, working clinically, supporting the Training Hub and representing the practice nursing voice within the system to highlight the value of our team’s skills. We’ll expand on all the areas we can support with next year. 
 
This month we thought we would give you the heads up on all the training planned – it’s all based around what you have asked for and primary care network targets, so we hope you find it useful. Please bear in mind though due to the current climate there may be cancellations at short notice.
