GP EDUCATION SESSION PRESENTATIONS

On June 25, Ascot Central Women's Clinic in partnership with MercyAscot hosted a 'Gynaecology Care Update' CME event.

Over 90 GPs from the Auckland area attended the event.

The seminar was led by a panel of Gynaecology experts from Ascot Central Women's Clinic.  Speakers included: Hilary Liddell; Douglas Barclay; Simon Edmonds and Anna-Marie Van Der Merwe.

Presentation topics were engaging and sparked a lively question and answer session.

Feedback for the event was extremely positive as GPs came away with relevant and valuable key messages for use in their clinical setting.

We also used the event as an opportunity to thank Hilary Liddell - in recognition of her significant contribution to Gynaecology over the last 30 years - as she announced her retirement.
