Sexual Health Lunch and Learn Webinars

We are delighted to promote a series of Sexual Health 1 Hour Lunch and Learn sessions via MSTeams for Primary Care Nursing and AHP Colleagues in Gloucestershire.

These sessions are based on the feedback from the CPD survey for General Practice Nurses and Allied Health Professionals and our Countywide offer. Sexual Health learning and development was identified as one of the top priorities. We would also welcome topics you wish to be included as part of any future sessions.

For any sexual health topics you wish to propose for future sessions please contact

Please complete the booking form for the sessions you would like to attend and further information will be sent to you in due course. Each topic will be repeated on a number of dates, but the content will remain the same.

Places are strictly limited therefore please do not book a place on more than 1 date for each topic.

If you subsequently need to cancel or re-arrange your reservation, please contact the pcwc inbox as soon as possible, providing your name and email address, so that places can be re-allocated to other interested individuals.
