GP Events

GPs play an important role in assessing and managing patients, including those who then need to be referred to a hospital. The aim of our workshops is to update GPs who refer to Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) on the latest assessment and management of a range of common conditions and new pathways for referral, using evidence based case studies and practical sessions.
