We've come to the end of an extremely difficult year that has affected us all personally and professionally. With the implementation of a COVID vaccination programme in progress, we can be hopeful that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. As we look forward to 2021, we want to take the time to thank you for your contributions in supporting our members throughout a challenging year.
Events We are planning to host a virtual conference for LMCs in the Buying Group. We'll be in touch in the new year to ask you what you'd like us to focus on to make the event as useful as possible.
Christmas and New Year Period Our team are still operating remotely and will be for the foreseeable future. We will be closed for the Christmas period from 5pm on Wednesday 23 December 2020 and return on Monday 4 January 2021. We will however be operating an on-call service on the working days over the festive period for any urgent queries that need immediate action.
BSA COVID Vaccination Training Module - Out Now Our approved supplier Blue Stream Academy has released a COVID-19 Vaccination Training module, which is available now on their GP eLearning suite. The module is designed to support the health and care workforce involved in the national COVID-19 vaccination programme. It collates required information on the ‘COVID-19 Vaccination Programme’ that is published by Public Health England (PHE) as well as Information on the ‘Storage and Preparation’ of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
This module can assist in delivering the knowledge each trainee needs to communicate with individuals successfully and maximise the uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine. Please kindly circulate the details of this module on to practices in your locality. If they have any further questions or challenges accessing the GP suite, they can get in touch with Blue Stream Academy directly on 01773 822549.
For now, on behalf of the entire LMC Buying Group Team, have a Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
