PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

SUPPORTING YOU TO ENHANCE YOUR SKILLS

You’re an expert in clinical care, but there are many different skills required to be a modern GP. For instance, with shorter appointment times and increasing patient expectations, it’s more important than ever that your communication skills are as good as they can be.

To help, we offer a wide range of free professional development resources available to guide you through any challenging issues you might face in general practice. Each of these are built around the experience of our expert medicolegal advisers and GPs, and designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of general practice. 

Free CPD and professional development

Over 70% of complaints and claims occur due to poor communication. So, to pass on key knowledge needed to help you avoid medicolegal pitfalls, we have developed our own free CPD approved educational programme, created by doctors who are specially-trained in coaching the non-clinical skills required by today’s GPs.
