Local Education

Unfortunately with the current situation surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) we are taking every precaution to keep our patients, stakeholders and employees safe during this time. Regrettably this means we have taken the decision to postpone all our clinical education events until the end of August 2020. Please get in touch with your local GP Liaison Officer for any information or queries.

Cobalt Hospital are delighted to organise GP education talks at your practice to enable valuable face to-face Consultant / GP interaction. We are happy to arrange sessions at a date / time which is convenient to you.

All talks will be presented by a Consultant of your choice who practices at Cobalt Hospital and requests for bespoke topics are always welcomed. The session consists of a short presentation on the topic of your choice followed by time to ask individual questions and discussion.

A certificate of attendance is issued for all participants and we will provide a buffet lunch. This service is completely complimentary and can be incorporated in your CPD evidence.

Below is a list of suggested topics and if you would like to be part of the GP Education Programme please contact your GP Liaison Officer Adele Blythe on email: adele.blythe@ramsayhealth.co.uk or call on: 07966 053 482

We look forward to the opportunity to meet all of you and keep you updated on our services and consultants practicing at Cobalt Hospital.
