Current courses and seminars

Submission of travel/subsistence expenses for CPD and Foundation Training course claim forms FP84.

The Family Health Services (FHS) underwent a reorganisation from 1 April 2015 resulting in slight changes to their team in Welwyn Garden City.  They are also reviewing core and non-core work that they carry out.  This does mean a change to how FP84 forms will be processed.  All submissions on an FP84 form for travel/subsistence expenses for Continuing Professional Development and Foundation Training Courses must now be submitted to:

NOTE

Health Education East of England has recently introduced a small change to the provision of Dental Multi-professional Education in our region.  This change is to enhance the quality management of the education and CPD certificates provided.

At each event you attend there will now be two registers.  There will be the normal start register.  However, there will now be a separate register that you will need to complete at the end of each session.

This new procedure will enable HEEoE to demonstrate each learner has attended the whole session.  This will reinforce the status of the CPD certificates you receive from HEEoE.

It is vital that you sign both registers when you attend an event at any of the HEEoE Postgraduate Centres.  If you do not sign both you will be unable to claim your CPD Certificate.

This process has just come into force February 2015

I hope this new process is clear?  If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact your Postgraduate Education Centre.
