The Worcestershire Sexual Health Service Training originally advertised for the 10thJuly has been postponed till Autumn! Sign-up link and more information to follow nearer the time.
Many apologies to those of you who had signed up – cancellation emails have been sent to all Worcestershire pharmacies, but it appears some people may not have received them.
The paperwork and sign off through the Care Trust and Council is taking longer than expected and there is a regional PGD being proposed as well, so we want to avoid duplication. Consequently the required information will not be ready for July.
The training event is being moved to the Autumn – attendance by the Pharmacists from any pharmacy wishing to participate in the extended service will be mandatory. All pharmacies that currently provide the EHC service will be able to sign up to the extended service which will be in two phases – Ulipristal and Chlamydia screen and treat fist phase then COC POP first pack and ongoing supply in second phase (BP, BMI checks etc. required).
Two training dates will be available 11th September and 2ndOctober.
Pharmacies that don’t currently provide EHC and wish to do so / offer extended services will be able to express interest as well. There may be a restriction in final number of pharmacies providing the service if large numbers apply.
Please be assured that Melanie Mann – Sexual Health Consultant is working hard to get the service details confirmed and documentation finalised so that the service can be extended in the Autumn.
Apologies for the postponement – we didn’t want the evening to be wasted as the documentation would not have been available. Thank you for your understanding.
Any concerns / questions please let us know.
