These two half day modules work well when run together in a single day as the Snomed training establishes the baseline knowledge for the Note Summarising course.

The course will raise confidence, eliminates the most common mistakes with a simple to use structure, and will improve the quality of the coding and summarising in the practice, which in turn will improve safety, audit, QoF and quality.
