The practice is closed one afternoon per month for staff training. On-going training is an essential part of ensuring both the staff and GP’s remain up to date with any changes to their role or to protocols that affect how they work. The training sessions are referred to as Protected Learning Time (PLT) and are run throughout the country. In Northamptonshire half of the area will close on a Tuesday and half will close on a Wednesday.

The dates are organised centrally and we do not have control over the timetable.

NHS 111 is available to deal with medical queries whilst the practice is closed.

Please see below a list of PLT dates through the year.
