AT Training – 2014 dates and update on service commissioning

We have now published the dates for our 2014 training courses. The courses will take place in the week beginning 22nd September and the week beginning 17th November.

The courses are designed as either an introduction, refresher or update for staff who work with people with disabilities who may benefit from either Environmental Controls, Communication Aids, computer access or specialised wheelchair controls.  The courses are available to staff working in our current ‘patch’ of Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster.

NHS England is in the process of taking over responsibility for commissioning these specialised services and these sessions will include an update on this and provision within the region.  In addition the courses will cover how the care pathway will work – for example criteria for referrals, information required and expectations around local service provision.

The training page on our website has a PDF flyer with detail of our 2014 courses.
