Neurology Red Flags: What to do next?

This Primary Care Neurology Society morning workshop will be lead by consultant neurologists - Dr Martin Turner in October and Dr Gerard Saldhana in November, with input into the topics provided by GPwSI and P-CNS Chair Dr Nassif Mansour.

It is an ideal opportunity for GPs and the wider primary care team to refresh their knowledge and skills in identifying and taking appropriate action when patients present with key neurology ‘red flags' symptoms.

The workshop is divided in to a number of sessions, each tackling a different symptom (e.g. headache, weakness, tingling, dizziness incl. LOC, tremor, memory). There will be ample opportunity for you to discuss issues currently challenging you.
