Practise Hope focuses on children and young people, as well as the wellbeing of the practice staff themselves from GPs and nurses to receptionists and admin staff.
All GP practices who sign up to Practise Hope receive training:
Suicide Prevention Training is delivered on-line by trainers, some of whom are clinicians themselves, as part of the Practise Hope initiative –
Clinical Staff Training – 60 mins, for up to 20 participants. It is expected for a Practice Lead and GPs and nurses from the same surgeries to attend this training scheduled during lunchtime.
Non-Clinical Staff Training – 90 mins, for up to 20 participants; ideally receptionists, medical secretaries and administration staff from the same surgery to attend.
