Practices get together to share knowledge
Dr Ethie Kong has found working together to be the key to staying up to date.
Her practice is one of 10 which have clubbed together to provide protected time for continuing professional development.
On Wednesdays or Thursdays, GPs from the consortium meet to educate each other or listen to guest speakers. They have drawn up an education programme and are now looking for funding.
Dr Kong says: 'You have to look at the means you have to improve your skills – one way is to do it in-house, the other is to do it collectively. We're going to learn what our needs are and what experience we can share.'
