Events and education support

Priory regularly hosts events at hospitals and wellbeing centres across the country, and is able to offer education support at your practice.

We also have a number of expert speakers with a wide range of specialities, who are available to visit your practice to host bespoke educational seminars. Our free sessions will last for up to one hour and include a presentation which will cover both the theory relating to the session topic, and an outline of practical ways that healthcare professionals can help their patients.

All practice staff or associated healthcare professionals, including GP registrars, practice nurses, medical students and locums, are welcome to attend and will be issued with an attendance certificate which can be used as evidence for CPD training.
