Avon Health Education

AHE as part of the LMC is relaunching it’s training and education programme.

In terms of education for GPs, we are continuing to provide GP education as we have done for many years, although we are also including a number of multi-disciplinary courses where there will be opportunities for different groups of clinicians to learn together.

We are continuing to work with consultants and a wider team of professionals to deliver educational days.

If you are interested in joining or booking a course please contact Mandy at mandy@almc.co.uk or 0117 9702755
