Often one of the main barriers to Practice Nurses, HCAs and NP/ANPs being able to work more flexibly across the city is the fact that we have two main clinical systems, EMISweb and Systm1.
By finding a mutually agreeable clinician at a practice that uses a different system to the one you are currently familiar with and organising amongst yourselves some time to offer each other some informal training, you can help with a more adaptable way of working in the future.
We would like to add that this is by no means obligatory but just another example of how nurses within the city can come together to share knowledge and gain experience.
