RCGP Certificate in the Management of Alcohol Problems in Primary Care

Every practice needs skills around Alcohol and Substance misuse. Our new Tower Hamlets GP Care Group contract with LBTH DAAT requires every practice to have at least one clinician who holds the RCGP Certificate in the Management of Alcohol Problems in Primary Care. This involves a free RCGP e-learning module and face to face training for a whole day. We are pleased to be offering the training day to all practices in Tower Hamlets on Tuesday 24th April.

The Care Group are funding the RCGP fees for this locally run course (£160 PP) to ensure there is one person per practice with this qualification. We are want to avoid the need for practices to access the national courses being offered by RCGP, as these are more expensive (£270 PP) and cannot fund centrally.

We will keep you informed if there are places available for more than one practice member to attend
