Protected Learning Time

Protected learning time (PLT) for GP surgeries has been available for a number of years, nationally.

For many practices this is used as an opportunity to deliver staff training on the premises or outside, for example group sessions for GP’s and nurses.

This is also the same for administrative staff members.

PLT is commissioned by the NHS which then filters down to the ICB to formalise the dates and organise clinical or non-clinical training. This can be also online training for everyone.

111 are commissioned by the ICB to support the surgeries by providing clinical triage and a GP if required.
