CPR Petition for Schools

An FY2 doctor in the Midlands started a scheme called #CPRinSchools. A petition has been started to try to get government funding for teaching school children to do basic CPR .

#CPR in schools is a national prize-winning programme for trainee healthcare professionals from all disciplines to teach Basic Life Support Skills to children in schools across the country:

*Teaching children life-saving skills.

*Inspiring children to have careers in the NHS.

This petition calls on the government to fund a national programme of training in CPR in schools.

Leadership Development for Doctors in Training

There has been a huge project across TV and Wessex in the last year, alongside the NHS Leadership Academy to develop a multi specialty framework for leadership development, as laid out in the Swanwick report of 2016. This project launches this spring with a series of workshops for doctors in training, alongside a resource for both trainers and trainees to find useful material to support leadership development. Bookings are high for the first few workshops.

The workshops (Language of Leadership) can be booked through the CBMS link on the Deanery website 

We have provided a number of workshops for supervisors in the last year to refresh / up skill / provide CPD opportunities in   development and coaching your trainees in leadership behaviours, which have been well received, particularly from the  trainers in the non-acute trusts. We will be advertising more dates shortly.
