Video consultation training offer for South West clinicians
As part of the South West outpatient transformation programme, we are delighted that we are able to offer clinical colleagues the opportunity to take up video consultation training to improve their confidence and skills.
There are two levels of training, both attracting continual personal development (CPD) points. Clinicians can take one or both courses at a time which suits them. Places are limited, and will be offered as a first come, first served basis.
