General Practitioner Special Interest Group (GP SIG)
Peninsula Home Hospice has a new General Practitioner Special Interest Group – Palliative Care. The purpose is to support General Practitioners within the Peninsula Home Hospice catchment area who have identified a special interest in palliative care to create a cohesive working relationship with specialist services to deliver better palliative care outcomes for people living and dying in their place of choice.
The Special Interest Group will provide an opportunity for General Practitioners to connect with other health professionals in the area of palliative care, build their clinical skills, and earn CPD points.
