GP Study Day: Cardio-respiratory symptoms

Date: Tuesday 4 December 2018
Time: 09:00 -16:00
Venue: Harefield Hospital (Concert Hall), Hill End Road, Harefield, UB9 6JH.

Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Specialist Care is pleased to invite you to our GP Study Day taking place at Harefield Hospital.

The event will focus on the four most common cardio-respiratory symptoms that primary care practitioners are faced with:

  • chest pain
  • palpitations
  • breathlessness
  • blackouts.

You will learn:

  • to diagnose conditions linked to each symptom
  • identify red flags
  • refer for the right diagnostic tests
  • when to refer on to secondary care.

Each interactive session will include a review of relevant NICE guidelines, as well as a GP perspective and hospital perspective, aiming to bridge these two levels of care.

We will conclude each session with case discussions, submitted by the speakers from both primary and secondary care. If you have a particular case to submit for discussion, please get in touch with us.

Attendance is free and you can click here to register online.
