“Excellent speakers and highly relevant topics for primary care.”

“May I take this opportunity to thank you and the Woolcock Institute for organising such a high quality education seminar for GPs which is extremely useful. I particularly appreciate the trouble you have taken to make the contents of the talks available online so that we don’t have to take notes. To top it all you now have the videos as well which is even better. I have never been to a seminar which is as well organised as yours. Congratulations!”
