National Centre for Remote and Rural Health and Social Care
NHS Education for Scotland (NES) are leading the development and establishment of the National Centre for Remote and Rural Health and Social Care on behalf of the Scottish Government with a proposed launch date of spring 2023 (read more about the National Centre here).
The Remote and Rural Healthcare Educational Alliance (RRHEAL) are delivering the Remote & Rural Series of Learning Events throughout 2023 to replace the cancelled Festival of Learning and to continue to support remote, rural & island communities throughout Scotland. The training sessions will start in January 2023, via MS Teams and will continue to be delivered throughout the year.
The Scottish Government have set out their vision for Scotland to be a world leader in remote and rural health and social care provision promoting and celebrating the exemplary achievements of healthcare providers within our remote, rural and island communities. They are keen to support the development of a National Centre for Remote and Rural Healthcare for Scotland that will help to achieve that vision.
These learning events will support the development of the National Centre by bringing together health and social care professionals, as well as community members to deliver a diverse range of multiagency models of health and social care, practice, education, and digital innovation.
The evaluation results from the learning series will also help inform the development of the National Centre.
The sessions are relevant to Health, Social Care and all of NES staff to support hybrid/remote working and continuous professional development. Some sessions are also relevant to community members.
You can find more information on each session by visiting the Remote & Rural Series of Learning Events page. Many more sessions are being arranged so please revisit this page regularly for registration details.
