Who Should Attend The Minor Surgery Course?
This highly practical and NHS England accredited Minor Surgery Course is for healthcare professionals who would like to develop or improve their surgical skills, whilst learning to provide a safe, effective and modern Minor Surgery Service.

The Minor Surgery Course is always led by experienced and practicing GPs, ensuring that a primary care focus and context is maintained throughout. They are supported by specialist surgeons and therapists, ensuring we always teach you the latest and most evidence based practices.

There’s a reason we’ve now been providing our Minor Surgery Course for over 10 years. To date we have taught over 9000 practitioners both nationally and internationally, with over 99% saying they would recommend this course to a friend or colleague!

The Minor Surgery Course begins with a series of punchy and entertaining lectures, where we cover practical tips, useful advice, and all the essential safety information you need. This is followed by supervised hands on practice for the rest of the day.

If you are a novice or beginner, then we’ll teach you to perform Minor Surgery. If you have previous experience, then you’ll expand your knowledge and fine tune your skills with the support of surgical experts. If you’re already an expert, then we’ll try not to drag you down!

The Minor Surgery Course is designed with GPs & Nurse Practitioners in mind, but is also suitable for any healthcare professional looking to develop their surgical skillset.

The course includes a Direct Observation of Procedural Skills (DOPS) assessment for GPs and Nurses requiring accreditation with NHS England. For experienced minor surgery practitioners requiring re-accreditation with NHS England, then our condensed 1 Day Minor Surgery Refresher Course is also suitable for you.
