Unfortunately, due to pressures on room space, it is not normally possible to accommodate trainees from South East Scotland who are not undertaking GIM training, or trainees in GIM from other Deaneries. However, if you are interested in a particular training day please check with the Education Co-ordinator (see below) whether space may be available.  If space is available, a registration fee would be charged for trainees from other Deaneries.
