Preparing for the cuts

Tuesday May 3This evening, I take my dispensing technician to a mandatory summary care records (SCR) face-to-face training event, having completed the prerequisite CPPE module. Seldom have I attended a meeting that has been such a complete waste of time, not to mention scarce NHS resources. The slides are all present on a downloadable ‘app’ and the CPPE module comprehensively covers everything.
