Setting up in private practice course agenda 2020
Future dates for this course will be announced.
As you are aware the UK government has indicated that everyone in the UK should avoid non-essential travel and contact and we are following this advice. After careful consideration we have decided to cancel all face to face courses until the end of 2020. When the situation changes we will update our website.
