GP and Allied Professionals Day

At BACO 2020 we will be hosting a special dedicated day for GPs and allied health professionals involved in the care of ENT patients, taking place on 9 July. All are welcome to attend, although the day is designed to be of most benefit to:

  • General Practitioners, especially those with an extended role in ENT
  • Physician Associates
  • Clinical Nurse Specialists who care for ENT and Head and Neck patients.


The academic content for the day has been developed around topics requested by a focus group of GPs. There will be an emphasis on when to refer to secondary care, as well as expertise in oral lesions, voice and swallowing. There will be case-based discussions in otology, difficult referrals for rhinosinusitis and paediatrics, and we will be introducing our virtual learning platform, a new resource which we hope attendees will find useful to them in the future. There will be opportunities to question the panel, discuss cases, as well as to network and share information across disciplines.

All content will be relevant to the GP curriculum, the Physician Associate curriculum and also the New Medical Licensing Assessment content map from the GMC, which will be of particular interest to all who have a responsibility for the training of future doctors.


5 CPD points will be available for participants.


Attendance for the day costs only £125 (+VAT) for registration plus a full year’s membership of ENT UK, including access to all e-learning resources. Registration without membership is just £100 (+VAT). ENT UK membership is separately available to GPs and allied health professionals for a discounted rate of only £6.25 per month.
