NHS claiming regulations

Friday 11 October 2019  |  London

 

Understand the pitfalls and controls and explore the grey areas of NHS regulations with the use of case studies and discussions with experts.

The NHS claiming regulations are notoriously difficult to interpret. Misunderstanding of these regulations can have serious consequences, leading to risk of major financial losses and possible referral to the GDC. This interactive one-day course will offer formal training to practitioners who are new to the NHS system and those who require an update on the current system (introduced in 2006).
