Children and young people make up around 25% of consultations in primary care, and in and amongst the simple and straightforward, there is some complexity and things that need careful thought. This specifically designed programme will address some of the most common and useful learning needs that busy GPs and primary care practitioners have, and we hope that this day will help you to manage these situations in the future.
