General Practice Update

The idea behind this event is to have an educational forum in a healthy environment, to meet and exchange views with your colleagues both in primary and secondary care and to get fit on the slopes so that you can return to work full of energy, ready to implement the knowledge that you acquired on the course. Val d’Isere is one of the finest ski resorts in Europe and a stunning setting for this unique conference. The meeting runs from 08.00-10.00 and 16.30-19.30 from Monday to Thursday.
