"I just wanted to send a quick email to say how great the PITstop diabetes 3-day course was. It was excellently run, very informative and very relevant to my everyday practice, I have taken so much away from this course and thoroughly recommend it to others.  Thank you so much for putting this on, I was a bit scared of diabetes before this course, but I feel more confident with it now - I will still need support but do feel like I can support people with diabetes and lifestyle much more confidently. Thank you so much for the opportunity of this training."

Next Generation GP

Specifically designed for GP trainees and early-career GPs (up to 7 years post CCT); these free-to-attend sessions, delivered by both national and local healthcare leaders, aim to energise, engage and empower participants in shaping care within their own organisations and beyond.  Further details to be announced in due course regarding the 2024/25 programme.
