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

UTIs and constipation
This topic has the potential to be quite dull, and might come under the heading ‘boring but important’, but GPs have a potentially huge role to play in managing these in children confidently and competently, and it can be professionally very satisfying to get these presentations right for families, the first time round

Recurrent abdominal pain
Seldom serious but a cause of great worry and often repeated presentations, and a very tricky consultation in children with concerned parents. We will cover red flag symptoms and discuss management of those with functional abdominal pain.
