The Joint Advisory Group (JAG) on gastrointestinal endoscopy is holding a JAG accreditation training day for services on Wednesday 13 November 2019 in Wales.
This 1-day event has been designed to provide practical advice and support to Welsh endoscopy services wishing to achieve JAG accreditation. During the training day, two JAG lead assessors will discuss the key areas that units find challenging and explain how they can overcome these issues.
The day will run from 10:00-16:00.
This day will be free for public Welsh services to attend as the event has been funded by the National Endoscopy Programme. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
Each Health Board can book a maximum of four places on this training day to ensure that there are adequate spaces for all services to attend. We recommend health boards send representation from each service that is registered with JAG.
