TRAINING – Diabetic and Epilepsy Training and Courses offered by St Nicholas Hospice Care September 2018



Along with Anglian Training, DUET diabetes is organising two free events in the autumn – one in Norfolk in September and the second in Suffolk in November.  I have attached a flyer and information can also be accessed via the news page on our website  These events are predominantly for the ‘post-16’ & adult care sector, however we expect some attendees from community health roles to attend, including from GP practices.

Places are limited to 2 per organisation – for more information or to make a booking, please contact us.  Nearer to the dates in question we will communicate additional information regarding the programme content.
