*** Newsflash - Changes to planned workshop 5th March 2019 ***

The seminar planned on the 5th March, "A walkthrough the Core Contracts" has been cancelled by LMC Law due to the major changes to the contract announced last month.

An alternative session will replace the original workshop, led by the LMC, to highlight to GPs what they need to know about the new Contract. Please save the date and come along to The Lecture Theatre at the Learning and Development Centre, Calderdale Royal Hospital.  Read more here...
