The theme of the 2018 RCGP Tamar Faculty study day is Lifestyle Management.  The day will give delegates practical advice and techniques that they can use with patients and also in their own lives.  The programme is varied, with a mix of clinical and non-clinical speakers and workshops.

There will be the opportunity to undertake BLS in one of our workshops.

Refreshments are provided throughout the day.

Delegates will be given a three day pass to use the Nuffield Health gym facilities.
