The practice is closed one afternoon per month for staff training. On-going training is an essential part of ensuring both the staff and GP’s remain up to date with any changes to their role or to protocols that affect how they work. The training sessions are referred to as Protected Learning Time (PLT) and are run throughout the country. In Northamptonshire half of the area will close on a Tuesday and half will close on a Wednesday.

Our training session is usually the second Wednesday afternoon of the month.

NHS 111 is available to deal with emergencies whilst the practice is closed.

Please see below a list of PLT dates through the year. This information is also available on notice board in the surgery and advertised via our health promotions screens in the waiting rooms.
