CREATE (Clackmannanshire Resource for Education Audit and Training)
Protected Learning Time for the Practice Doctors, Nurses and Administrative Staff.
The practice believes strongly in education and keeping up to date. On 7afternoons per year, we close to 'normal' activity and take part in training on a variety of clinical and practice administrative topics. We believe this is a very valuable use of our time and hope you will understand that the regular running of the practice may be disrupted in a small way now and again.
During a CREATE afternoon, emergency cover is provided by Forth Valley Out of Hours and NHS24. For urgent matters you should call NHS24 directly on 111.
CREATE was set up for Clackmannanshire GP Practices by a team inspired and led by Dr Houston from Dollar and over the years was so successful that it has been adopted and adapted by the Health Board who now fund it and support it for the whole of Forth Valley.
Some of the CREATE sessions are held jointly with all 7 Clackmannanshire practices, the rest being 'in-house' when the whole Practice Team meet to learn, re-learn and update their skills on a wide variety of topics.
