"Practical problems in primary care teams" 
Evening CPD sessions Autumn/Winter 2019

The University of Glasgow, in conjunction with the West of Scotland Faculty of the Royal College of General Practitioners, has developed a series of evening meetings to enable members of the primary care team to address practical patient management issues and, at the same time, demonstrate learning gained.
