ACPGBI Conference

Mark Coleman, and Laura Stapleton Programme Manager from the National Training Programme Coordination Office attended the ACPGBI Conference in Harrogate between 8-11th June.  During the 4 days Mark Coleman undertook a series of presentations including an overview of the NTP on Thursday 11th June, which received a good attendance.  In the region of 800 delegates attended the conference, all of whom received the Lapco leaflet in their conference bags providing a summary of contact details, training centres and courses.  It was an excellent opportunity to meet and discuss various matters with the majority of the trainers who attended, along with a total of 35 new contacts made through the stand.  A number of these are potential new entrants to the programme, along with expressions of interest in preceptoring.  All the contacts and feedback received as a direct result of our attendance will be followed up by the Coordination office.  If anyone attended and wishes to pass on any further relevant contacts please let us know.
