The day featured a wide and varied programme of talks by Whitfield consultants in their respective practices and specialties and was very well attended by GP’s from the south east region.
Over the course of the day Mr. Gareth Higgins, Consultant Ophthalmologist; Mr. Ian Kelly, Consultant Orthopaedic; Dr. Kevin Ward, Consultant Endoscopy; Mr. Imtiaz Ahmed, Consultant Urologist and Mr. Munish Shandilya, Consultant ENT spoke on a diverse range of topics pertaining to patient management.
Whitfield CEO, Mr. Paul Lynam was pleased with the event. “Whitfield has been hosting GP Study Days since 2013 and the event is invaluable not just to GP’s, but to our staff too. It gives healthcare professionals the opportunity to share new ideas, discuss developments in healthcare and to put into best practice the skills to manage patients and their well-being.”
“The GP Study Days foster good collaboration between Whitfield and primary care practitioners and address common issues in both primary and secondary care.”
