Practices in the Norwich CCG area will be attending a Protected Learning Time (PLT) session on the afternoon of Wednesday 25th March 2020, from 13:00 until 18:00.
Protected learning sessions provide the opportunity for GP’s and practice staff to attend training and updates that are a vital part of ensuring practices remain up to date on a range of subjects underpinning the healthcare provided for patients across Norwich.
Every practice in Norwich will be closed and all staff, including GPs, will not be available as usual during the afternoon of Wednesday 25th March 2020 from 13:00.
However, the Integrated Care 24 Ltd (IC24) will provide cover during the protected learning session by providing a telephone triage service between 13:00 -18:00, available by phoning NHS 111.
Following triage by IC24, if a patient needs clinical input they will be contacting an on-call GP, and if necessary will be given an appointment at specified locations the same day.
