Past delegate feedback:

‘Very, very well organised. Welcoming faculty who put delegates at ease and very approachable. Very useful and enjoyable course with realistic objectives that were delivered.’

‘The course was beyond expectation, Friendly Faculty and their teaching method was extraordinary. I think this course should be mandatory for all consultants. One of the best course I ever attended.’

‘This is without a doubt the best train the trainers course I have been on. This course is superior to any others as it is taught by
Surgeons for Surgeons. Excellent, well thought out programme. Very practical and relevant. I have already recommended to my entire
department of Consultants. This should be propagated and taught across the NHS.’
