Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub is holding a second Minor Illness Course delivered by the National Minor Illness Centre (NMIC), Luton.

The NMIC course has been designed to improve skills in the history-taking, clinical examination, diagnosis and management of acute illness. This is a practical course which includes presentations, practical demonstrations, and group activities. In order to be recognised as competent to run such a service in the eyes of CQC and their indemnity provider, they would need to undertake further study in order to obtain a recognised qualification (such as the Nmic diploma).

All delegates attending the course will have the opportunity to take the Royal College of Nursing accredited diploma. Assignments and work place based clinical skills are assessed and feedback to each delegate is individual. The work required to complete the diploma needs to be completed within one year of the start of the seminar week and costs an additional £650.

The course is taught by two experienced GPs from the NMIC who have long experience in the management of acute illness and specialist knowledge of minor illness in primary care.

All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance from the NMIC regardless of undertaking the RCN Diploma.
