Nursing Newsletter – 27 August 2021

Dear All


It was lovely to “see” so many of you this week at the annual Immunisation and ‘Flu update.  Helen did a splendid job and I hope you all agree with me that both sessions were full of very useful information.  All those who attended will receive a Certificate of Attendance and the slides and recording of the sessions are available on the Training Hub website.   The website has lots of useful resources and also has past editions of the Newsletter as well as the calendar of forthcoming educational events.  Please do visit:  If you attended and did not receive the certificate please email Georgina:


There were some concerns raised around the BCG vaccination pathway and I attach the relevant information for you.  the service is commissioned by NHSE and delivered by CLCH- Appendix 1 shows the BCG patient pathway.


You were also asking about the new PGD for the Shingrix vaccine for shingles. NHSE has updated it on their website, please click LINK

NCL Training Hub are looking forward to running another CARE programme this autumn. This is an opportunity for nurses to develop their leadership skills and develop communities of practice across their networks. They will also learn project management skills through delivery of a project in agreement with their PCN Clinical Director. This programme is linked to the PCN Nurse Lead project and priority will be given to nurses taking on those funded roles supported by their PCNs. The launch event is on Thursday 9 September 12-1pm – please register HERE – see attachment for more details, agenda to follow.  We have had 2 nurses from Barnet in the previous programme (Karen Landi) whose wellbeing work you have seen on our WhatsApp group and Ekene Taylor who is supporting the virtual group consultation work in her PCN.  I encourage you to consider this supportive programme for your own development.
