The rest of the information pertaining to the actual events is all on our website under those specific activity sections (CPD seminars, CPD workshops and the various nurse and care worker short courses) so you can literally just copy and paste it. In some places it may mention that Gerlu is the contact – if you see that, please just change it to say Lisa-Marie – it’s not a train smash, though, if you don’t edit it everywhere to show the correct contact, as I also don’t mind going and changing that if necessary at some stage.
