This full day course, led by HYMS director of Communication Skills Teaching and practising GP Anna Hammond, is suitable for any GP wishing to reflect and improve upon their consultation skills within the context of the current NHS.

The increasing prevalence of diabetes alongside the move to community-led chronic disease management mean that primary care clinicians must be confident in the management of diabetes and its complications. An ever increasing choice of medication and changing guidance on diabetes can makes this feel like an uphill struggle.
Using real world cases, this half day workshop, led by a local diabetologist aims to help local GPs, nurses and nurse practitioners update on developments in diabetic care and build confidence in managing our increasingly complex diabetic patients in primary care. It will also provide assistance in interpreting and implementing the new NICE guidance on diabetes.
£70 GPs (£65 for RCGP member and HYMS Clinical Tutors)
£60 practice nurses/ANPs
