CPD Educational seminar and events

HCA UK offers a programme of free CPD accredited education seminars covering a broad range of specialities for GPs, nurses and physiotherapists. Led by our internationally respected consultants, we showcase new developments and breakthroughs in healthcare, diagnostic procedures and conditions our specialist treat. CPD certificates will be awarded to attendees at the end of the seminar.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we’ve taken the decision to put in place precautionary measures and postpone or cancel face-to-face external meetings and events that are not business-critical or necessary for decisions about patient care. This will help to ensure the safety of you, our colleagues, consultants, visitors, patients and their families.
