Protected Time for Learning (PTL)

Protected Learning Time (PLT) was introduced in May 2018, allowing practices to close at the same time for a half day of shared learning time. There have been 12 external and seven internal events PLT events since May 2018 with over 2,350 practice staff attending (850 in 2021/22).
