Bury CCG’s practice nurse facilitator, Lesley Royle-Pryor said: “Nursing colleagues play a vital role in the care provided for patients within GP practices, but the role can be quite isolating in that they don’t always have the chance of working closely with their peers. Our new online tool aims to go someway to bridging that gap. 
“Wherever they are, they will be able to log in and link up with peers, share good practice, get the latest on learning opportunities and ensure they have a chance to shape service developments for the benefit of local patients.”
