Wigan Primary Care
Webinar Series

The Wigan Borough primary care education webinars are fortnightly education sessions delivered remotely and are accessible to all clinical members of staff.

Background

Speakers and subjects will vary depending on audience demand and opportunities to bring in expert speakers. We aim to leave participants feeling informed, confident and supported in dealing with the subjects covered.

Through fortnightly, virtually attended webinars we hope to build a regular learning time which offers interaction with local experts. This will help to translate national and local guidelines into applicable practice in the context of local services. An informal discussion is possible for those who wish to stay on however this may not be facilitated.
