RCGP accredited Minor Illness Course


There is a 2 day Minor Illness course in London on 21st and 22nd February 2023 that may be of great interest and benefit to local HCPs, in particular to clinical pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurse practitioners and paramedics.


Website: https://zingmedicaleducation.com/events/2-day-minor-illness-course-london/ The course was developed in response to feedback local HCPs in Northamptonshire who had undertaken an alternative course which they felt lacked the necessary practical relevance for everyday clinical practice. The course is referenced to the very latest evidence and guidance and is RCGP accredited (the only minor illness course run in the UK to have this). The course covers key topics, including:

  • Scope of Practice and Record Keeping

  • Safe Prescribing

  • Clinical Assessment Framework

  • Analgesia

  • Ear, Nose and Throat

  • Dermatology

  • Musculoskeletal

  • Psychiatry

  • Ophthalmology

  • Neurology

  • Men’s Health

  • Gastroenterology

  • Urology

  • Respiratory

  • Women’s Health

  • Fever

The course also includes key Clinical Skills Masterclasses, including:

  • Cardiovascular Auscultation skills

  • Musculoskeletal neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee, hand

  • Respiratory

  • Abdominal

  • Neurological The feedback from previous courses has been overwhelmingly positive and the course is run annually with a limited number of delegates to ensure interactivity. There is a case based assessment at the end of each course to consolidate the learning and to ensure that delegates are proficient at translating the learnings into front line clinical practice. The course this year is currently being offered at a discounted rate of £450 (normal rate is £550). Please do forward this email on to any HCPs that you feel may be interested in attending and the link for individual bookings is: https://zingmedicaleducation.com/events/2-day-minor-illness-course-london/ In the past, PCNs and training hubs have “block booked” attendance and offered them to their local HCPs. For block bookings of 10 or more (subject to availability), the rate is reduced to £400 per delegate. Please contact Oriana Cinquini-Steel oriana@zingmedicaleducation.com directly if you wish to discuss and book a block booking.
