ALL WALES APPROVED CLINICIAN AND
SECTION 12(2) INDUCTION AND TRAINING
The All Wales Approved Clinician and Section
12(2) Induction and Refresher training dates for 2014 are now
available on the Approval
Team's website. The training is being delivered in a new
format this year, with two days induction training and a
separate day of refresher training. If you are required to
attend training this year, please visit the website to
download the relevant booking form.
All new prospective Approved Clinician's and
Section 12(2) Doctors are required to attend a two day course
commissioned by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board. The
certificate is required as part of the application process and
applicants must have attended the training no longer than two years
prior to applying for approval.
All Section 12(2) Doctors must attend a one
day refresher course within the last two years of their current
five year approval ending.
Approved Clinician's are not required to
attend the one day refresher to be reapproved, however they are
welcome to attend as the training provides an opportunity to learn
about any changes to legislation, better practice and share
experiences with AC colleagues.
Please note: there
are still places available for AC / S12(2) Induction Training
on 26th and 27th February and Refresher Training on 28th February
