pdfThe West Leicestershire Respiratory Upskilling Programme


"As a GP with an interest in respiratory disease the opportunity to put together a training programme for local GPs and practice nurses in WLCCG was very exciting. With the support of my wonderful secondary care colleagues, Jane Scullion and Anna Murphy, we designed a 4 module evening training programme with an end of course assessment. This was taken up really well by local practices and the feedback was excellent. I believe we have stimulated and encouraged local clinician interest in respiratory disease, an often neglected area. I would encourage any CCG to run with this programme to drive up knowledge and skills for clinicians in their areas."
