CPD Connect: (First5 GPs) "A Day in the Life of a Busy General Practice" Webinar series


Target audience: First5 GPs (please enter your CCT date in the special requirements box when booking to authenticate your funding)


This is a series of 10 (possibly 12) webinars called “A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A BUSY GENERAL PRACTICE”.  This will provide a minimum of 10 hours of CPD but is anticipated to be nearer 15.


These webinars will run on various days and times throughout the months of November 2022 and March 2023.


All webinars will be recorded, so even if you can’t make the session live, you will have full and exclusive access to the video provided you have booked in advance. You will receive the recording via email 48 hours after the event, along with any resources and presentations we have permission to share.


Once you have booked your place here, you will be sent individual links for Microsoft Teams Live for each individual event nearer the time of each webinar.


Please note that whilst Portal suggests that this is taking place on 31st March for 10 hours, this is just a placeholder to ensure the correct number of CPD hours are awarded.  


The programme of events is below.  Whilst some dates and times are to be finalised, the topics have been confirmed.  We will email you updated dates and times for the events as these get confirmed, but you will be able to watch on "catch up" if you are unable to attend live:
