For many years Practice Nurses and Nurse Practitioners have attended our extremely popular Hot Topics GP Update course, NB Medical are now delighted to offer this half day course designed specifically with Primary Care Nurses in mind. We are passionate about primary care, and committed to helping busy primary care professionals practice evidence-based medicine in an easy, time efficient way. Our teaching is focused on the patient, the problems they bring us and how best we can help them.
General Practice is changing. Many GP’s are facing recruitment issues and HMR Primary Care Academy recognise that other professionals would be beneficial to practices to improve the service offered.

They have been first responders in a variety of situations, they also see the same types of patients as GP's, and are experts at keeping patients at home and linked to various community teams. If you are interested in offering a paramedic a placement in your practice –get in touch.
