Safeguarding Training for Opticians

Dorset and Hampshire Safeguarding Board run a series of safeguarding courses and Primary Care Commissioning Support at NHSE are looking into the courses being run for the primary care contractors.  At present they offer a series of courses that are run during the day.  These courses are topic specific.  The courses cover level 1, Level 2 and level 3.  The course materials will be available on the safeguarding boards website.

Can you let Primary Care Commissioning Support (details below) know if you  would be interested in attending safeguarding training and what levels you would be interested in.   When is the best time to hold the training events?  ie a whole day, half day session in either morning or afternoon or evening only.   How much notice would needs need when the training sessions are organised.?

Please email your thoughts as soon as possible so that they can look into arranging the training sessions.
