Education for Health’s Long Term Conditions Workshops Accredited by RCGP

1st April 2015

Education for Health are delighted to announce that many of our Long Term Conditions workshops now have RCGP Accreditation.

Education for Health have been educating primary care healthcare professionals since 1987, growing from a narrow respiratory focus into a specialist health education provider ranging across respiratory, cardiovascular, diabetes and many other Long Term Conditions.

The RCGP accreditation represents another stage in the organisation’s growth and helping to achieve our vision: Everyone living with a Long Term Condition receives high quality care.

The RCGP Accreditation Assessor Panel declared that the courses offer ‘an interesting and varied programme that was thoroughly referenced and had solid GP led input’.

Monica Fletcher, Education for Health Chief Executive said: “We are passionate about making a difference to patient care, and the RCGP accreditation of our Long Term Conditions workshops is an important step in realising our vision as a Charity.

“I am thrilled that this accreditation is in recognition of our comprehensive and varied Long Term Conditions training. I feel it reflects on every member of the Education for Health team and their dedication to improving patient health through education of health professionals, including GPs and other healthcare professionals.”

Dr. Jonathan Shapiro, Chair of Education for Health commented:

“Education for Health’s work in the field of Long Term Conditions has made an enormous difference to the lives of millions of patients, and will continue do so through training GPs and their teams. The RCGP accreditation will widen our access to GPs across the United Kingdom.

“As a former GP, and someone who has been involved in training and development throughout the whole of my career, I feel that the content of the Long Term Conditions training will be of phenomenal use to General Practitioners in enhancing their clinical knowledge, and will ensure that patients receive excellence in Long Term Conditions management.”
