Training for GPs & Healthcare

Meet your CPD obligations while having fun and refreshing your skills with our Healthcare courses

Designed to meet your CPD Requirements

While immediate, life-threatening emergencies may not be a regular event in your workplace, they do happen and its important that all members of your team know their role in the event of an emergency.

Healthcare professionals are required to undertake continuous professional development (CPD) to be able to demonstrate that they are up to date and fit to practise.

Carrying out regular CPR and Anaphylaxis updates demonstrates your commitment to professional development.  It can contribute towards the Knowledge, Skills & Performance, Safety & Quality and Communication, Partnership and Teamwork domains of the Good Medical Practice Framework for Appraisal and Revalidation.
