Avoiding medico-legal pitfalls in primary care course agenda 2020
Future dates for this course will be announced.
6 hours of CPD*
After careful consideration we have decided not to run face to face courses until further notice. When the situation changes we will update our website.
GPs are vulnerable to criticism from lots of different sources. Concerns can arise from the most seemingly harmless and innocent of situations, and a wide range of different investigations can come about as a result of a single incident.
However, we believe this 'multiple jeopardy' can be mitigated by the approach taken by doctors and the practice team when things do go wrong.
This interactive course is for GPs and practice managers who want to manage these day-to-day risks better, and aims to help practice teams 'get it right'.
This course complements all our other courses, but particularly those on complaint handling, conflicts and the duty of candour.
*Worth 6 hours of CPD when accompanied by a reflective note.
If you are not in a GROUPCARE scheme you can pay to attend this course.

It was a really great course; I learnt so much and it was so relevant to general practice. The case study was so helpful to work through
Very informative, reassuring as well as providing a wake up call
