Excellent speaker

I have been to a few courses with Yassir as the speaker. As usual, his delivery was excellent! Course content was concise yet covered all aspects needed. Would recommend to everyone especially clinical pharmacists for use in day to day clinics

Thank you so much for this course. Dr Yassir is great at teaching and the conditions were picked well. I felt I received an in depth training in all the minor illnesses and am ready to start my own minor illness clinic within our GP. Thanks for giving me the confidence to do so.

Not to be missed if you are thinking of expanding your scope

I was nervous about needing to hold minor illness clinics. I had heard about this course from lots of others so decided to attend. Definitely wasn’t disappointed. Feel confident now having understood all the different minor illness conditions and given a very detailed handbook which I have already used whilst in clinic. Also the organisation from booking to lunch to unlimited coffee was a bonus!
