A two day minor surgery course run in conjunction with Medical Skills Care Ltd. The nationally recognised course is devised by primary care experts with the support of plastic surgeons, dermatologists and orthopaedic surgeons.

The emphasis is on doing the practical operating skills. There are very few sit down "lectures". The delegates will be doing the surgery, not the tutors! If you are a novice, then learn the basics. If you are an expert, then fine tune your skills with the support of plastic surgeons.

The tutors are GPs, plastic and orthopaedic surgeons. The timetable/agenda shown elsewhere details the items and areas covered over the two days.
