Excellence in Primary Care Educational Meetings 2018

"Excellence in Gastroenterology"


Welcome to our series of dedicated Gastroenterology Educational meetings.

The programme has been developed to address management and treatment options in upper and lower gastrointestinal disease in primary care. We are delighted to partner with regional RCGP faculties to deliver this education and work together to improve the patient journey.

At each meeting we will be joined by an excellent faculty to address the issues around reflux, including the appropriate use of PPIs as well as new concepts in the diagnosis and management of your IBD patients.

The day concludes with a series of interactive case histories specially designed to meet your needs, as frequently seen day-to-day presentations in primary care. We look forward to seeing you at one of our meetings during 2018.
