Professional Education, Development and Support for Telford and Shropshire GPs


What is Paean?

Paean was the physician to the Greek gods and the word also means “a hymn of joy”.

We think this is a positive incarnation of the spirit of Paean – offering support to our GP colleagues.

We are committed to supporting the education and development of GP’s in Telford and across the county of Shropshire.

Here you will find details of all educational opportunities for GP’s across the county and some outside Shropshire. We have details of Protected Learning Time events in Telford and Wrekin as well as presentations from previous events.

You will find appraisal resource documents within the resources section to help and support you in preparing for your annual appraisal and getting ready for revalidation.

Telford and Wrekin CCG do not accept pharmaceutical company sponsorship for any events. We want to make available a wide range of events on the calendar, many of which are arranged by other bodies and may have sponsorship. Inclusion of such events on the calendar does not imply any change in policy on behalf of the CCG and clinicians are advised to follow their own conscience when deciding whether to attend or to accept hospitality, in line with guidance from the GMC.
