Feedback from March 2019 module

"My first BAP course. Well worth the time and effort and it will change my practice for the better"

"Very relevant, how can this be rolled out across the country to standardize quality of patient care? It’s needed everywhere!"

"Excellent choice of hotel, warm and comfortable room, food was great and the staff were friendly. Very good. Susan Chandler was an excellent organiser, great content and organisation – in fact the best I’ve ever encountered, thank you. It was an excellent course and I will definitely come again"
