An innovative 10-day leadership programme for emerging primary care leaders in medicine, jointly organised by the Cambridge Judge Business School and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG, kicks off this weekend with a three-day induction weekend in Cambridge.
Strengthening primary care and its innovation potential is key to help the NHS weather the many challenges of the future.

EU Exit - Medicines Supply
The information for patients on nhs.uk around continuity of medicines supply if there is a no-deal EU exit has been updated. As well as this, the FAQ for clinicians on the NHS England website has also been updated.
These updates explain the government’s multi-layered approach to ensure that medicines continue to be available if there is a no-deal EU exit. It is important that this information is shared with front line staff, so they can pass this information on to patients.
