CLIC Clinical Skills Team Highly Commended for Innovation

The Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative (CLIC) has been Highly Commended in the Bright Ideas in Health for innovation in Primary Care.

NHS Innovations North organise the Bright Ideas in Health Awards on behalf of the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria. It is an annual competition to acknowledge the recent ideas and innovations developed by frontline NHS staff and healthcare SMEs to help make the NHS better. 

Representatives from the team attended a ceremony at the Hilton in Newcastle in June where NHS England  Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh delivered an inspiring speech about innovation and staff involvement.

Between June 2015 and March 2016 the CLIC Clinical Skills Programme trained over 900 nurses, bringing together registered nurses from hospitals, GP practices, nursing homes and those based in the community.  After each workshop Nurses were offered a supportive ‘follow up’ visit, to help them embed their learning  in practice.

The project delivered 147 workshops and helped to create new clinical networks in Cumbria bringing real benefits for patients.

The free courses, which were delivered by clinical specialists from a variety of teams here in Cumbria and tutors from the University of Cumbria, were delivered across the county.  This enabled Nurses to access the latest thinking and practice.

Programme Lead, Toni Hall, from the CLIC team said: 

“I am delighted that this collaborative approach to training and the follow up support provided by the team has been recognised in this way. We look forward to this being embedded  as part of the current developments across the health economy around Better Care Together and the Success Regime.”

To build on the work already undertaken the CLIC team have now developed a second phase of training for Health and Social Care Support Staff.  Workshops are being delivered across the county and are free to support staff from all sectors.  For more information visit: http://www.theclic.org.uk/education-and-learning/clinical-skills-programme/overview
