"Invaluable for any clinicians doing triage or a minor illness clinic!"
"I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering working in practice managing minor illness."
"I can honestly say it was the most amazing course. It was taught in a really logical way easy to understand. I had previously been on a uni accredited minor aliments which was taught in a muddled confusing way, that both my colleague and myself barely made sense of. I was so pleased to be on this course. So well taught."
