General practice staff offered free training in basic life support skills

General practice staff working in Haringey and Islington can access free training in conflict resolution, basic life support skills and safeguarding for adults and children following the launch in August of a pilot aiming to improve access to training, by Whittington Hospital and Haringey and Islington CEPNs (training hubs).
