This type of bursary has been utilised to positive effect in NHS Lanarkshire where a number of foundation lunches have taken place. Interested? Dr Neera Gajree has kindly developed a template to assist with the organisation of these as well as providing the presentation used during the informal event. Get in touch for further information.
