Full details on the number of available places per workshop can be found in the attached programmes. Where possible, places have been allocated per practice to ensure that all members have the opportunity to send delegates to each of the educational workshops.

A waiting list will be in operation for one additional member of staff per workshop. Therefore, if some practice members choose not to take up their full allocation then these places will be released to the waiting list.
In order to secure your allocated place please complete the attached booking form and return this to the Primary Care inbox – CAPCCG.PrimaryCare@nhs.net – by Monday 12 February 2018.
Any allocated places which have not been confirmed by this date will released automatically and opened up to the waiting list.
In line with previous events, the CCG will be supporting backfill payment to the amount of 1 GP session - £285.00 - per practice. This payment should enable to practices to offer a limited/partial closure whilst releasing staff to attend one or more of the available educational workshops.
Payment will be made directly to the practice upon confirmation of attendance to one or more of the advised educational workshops. Confirmation of attendance will be reviewed via the workshops sign in sheets. As such, please ensure that all attendees complete the sign-in sheet.
We would like to confirm that the CCG has not secured any HUC cover for this development date. However, practices may wish to consider approaching HUC directly to seek support with call handling etc. Please note that any such arrangement would be directly between the practice and HUC.
We would encourage practices to consider how they might work with together to provide adequate cover within their localities to support smaller practices to engage in the workshops.
If you have any queries then please contact the Primary Care team at CAPCCG.PrimaryCare@nhs.net.

Reminder: FREE access to the Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme (CDEP)
We are pleased to confirm we have secured funding to enable clinicians working in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough continued FREE access to the Cambridge Diabetes Education Programme (CDEP).
The new registration key code is: CambsPboroCCG. Details for how to register can be found in the attached flyer. We would encourage as many clinicians to register as possible, and this will support achievement of the Diabetes LES.
From the last audit undertaken in late February 2017 by the team, the average evaluation of all CDEP activity across all topics (n=4401):
- 86%of users rate an improvement or significant improvement in competence
- 83%of users rate an improvement or significant improvement in confidence
- 85 %of users rate an improvement or significant improvement in familiarity with diabetes guidelines.
There are currently healthcare practitioners from all care sectors registered with CDEP:
- 48% from hospital trusts
- 35% from general practice
- 8% from community services
- 8% from other (such as paramedics, pharmacies, pharma, charities, etc)
- 1% from nursing homes.
To align CDEP with the structure of diabetes competency frameworks, there are 5 levels that practitioners can register at, according to their role. These levels are accumulative so specialist diabetes staff are required to demonstrate core and intermediate diabetes competencies in additional to the ones more applicable to their expertise:
Level 1 = core (minimum level for working with people living with diabetes)
Level 2 = intermediate (roles that have regular contact with people living with diabetes)
Level 3 = diabetes specialist (roles that directly support people managing their diabetes)
Level 4 = diabetes expert (roles that intensively support complex patients with diabetes)
Level 5 = diabetes consultant (roles that are responsible for managing a specialist caseload as well as leading service design, workforce planning, business case development, etc).
If anyone has any queries please do not hesitate to contact Sally Berry, Diabetes Programme Manager firstname.lastname@example.org, or Candice Ward, Lead CDEP Educator email@example.com.
