Doctors to hear latest on safeguarding

Quarterly session taking place next week

Safeguarding vulnerable patients is the topic for the latest training session for the Island's GPs.

Family doctors will take time out from their surgeries on Wednesday afternoon next week, for a briefing on the latest developments and best practice.

The quarterly brainstorm sessions, established in 2012, are an opportunity for GPs to share know-how and discuss patient care.

Practices will remain open during the afternoon for patients to see the practice nurse, collect test results and make appointments.

There'll be no routine GP appointments but on-call doctors will deal with emergencies.
