What you had to say

Wonderful engaging speaker! After 20 years of education and struggling to understand spirometry, the penny has dropped!

Great presentation – really thought provoking for this newbie in the GP world!

Great presenter, who delivered to the audience! I’ve worked in Crit Care for 18 years and never had anyone break it down so well!

Picked up some great hints about how to manage wounds in my practice

Really excited to get the tools to use for speaking to my patients about mental health

Kim is inspiring. I wish she could come to speak to all the staff and doctors at my practice. I love her enthusiasm
