This two day course, brought to you by Severn Faculty, will enable you to develop the skills required to run a successful minor surgery service in primary care. Topics covered include minor skin procedures, joint injections and non-surgical techniques as well as advice about how to set up a service and the medico-legal and contractual obligations required of those practising minor surgery.

Our course is taught by a very experienced team of clinicians drawn from plastic surgery, orthopaedics, general practice and physiotherapy who have extensive experience of running minor surgery courses. If you have little prior experience of minor surgery there is an opportunity to learn the basics, if you are already experienced then there is the opportunity to fine tune your skills with the support of our experienced tutors.
