CPD Training for GPs

We are pleased to be able to offer a series of free continuing professional development CPD training presentations, talks and workshops by our consultants for GPs in your own surgery at a time to suit your staff and practice training schedule. All CPD talks are aimed at primary care management and referral only when necessary to secondary care.
