Like all training providers, our live programme was suspended in mid-March in-line with the COVID-19 lockdown. While NICPLD has a considerable elearning portfolio, we wanted to explore ways in which workshops can be delivered remotely.
One way is to use eWorkshops, the first of which is Preventing Skin Cancer, which was the subject of our regional programme.
18 March 2020Dear colleagues
NICPLD has cancelled all live workshops and regional programmes from April to June 2020, in line with QUB COVID-19 recommendations. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates in relation to the delivery of our programmes.
Workforce development programme, such as Foundation and Independent Prescribing, have also been postponed and we will contact pharmacists on these programmes in due course with information about rescheduling training and assessments.
If you have any further queries, please contact our office via email – firstname.lastname@example.org.

As an organisation, we recognise that this is an anxious time and that many are worried about the coronavirus pandemic. The health and well-being of pharmacists, pharmacy staff and the wider community is our priority and subsequently we have decided to postpone all live workshops and regional programmes scheduled to take place between now and Easter (13th March - 9th April). We will continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates in relation to the delivery of our live programme.
We are working to ensure that workforce development programmes (including Independent Prescribing and Foundation Programmes) can be delivered and individuals registered on these programmes will be emailed with further details.
If you have any further queries, please contact our office via email – email@example.com .

Having consulted with colleagues in the regional venues and considered the forecast for this evening, we have decided to postpone the regional programmes scheduled to take place this evening in Ballymena and Portadown. Given that there is currently a Yellow Weather Warning in place, we do not wish anyone to travel unnecessarily as the well-being of tutors and participants is our ultimate concern.
We will endeavour to reschedule these events and will be in touch as soon as alternative arrangements are in place.

As you are aware, NICPLD is relocating to the NI Medical and Dental Training Agency (NIMDTA) from Thursday 1st August 2019. During this transition normal online and email services will continue and will be the most appropriate means of contacting the Centre. A new VOIP telephone system is being introduced and therefore telephone services will not be available until mid-August. Once the new system is in-place our current telephone numbers will remain unchanged.
