Effective training by success in GMC survey 
“Simon and his team recently provided some workshops for a department in my hospital on creating a positive learning environment and reflective practice. This really enhanced the change in culture for training and education in the department. It showed in our GMC results for that department which went from multiple red outliers in the previous GMC survey to completely white/no outliers in the latest one.”
