In practice training

Two practitioners

Following on from Covid-19, the Dental Section at HEIW has introduced a blended approach for dental team’s basic life support training. The section has collaborated with the Pharmacy section within HEIW, to offer dental professionals an online BLS training module.

We are pleased to announce that from 1st April 2023, general dental practices with an NHS contract will be entitled to free medical emergency in-practice training that is organised with HEIW. Practices without an NHS contract will continue to be charged a fee.

After completion of the online module, Dental Teams within General Dental Practices can supplement this training with a practical session at their practice, carried out by our commissioned Training Providers.

Completion of both courses meets the GDC enhanced CPD criteria and represents 2 hours of verifiable CPD.
