    Presentation to surgery

    Post by sanguine on Fri Apr 10 2015, 16:37

    After my last DN appointment in March I emailed the practice manager offering to come in and make a presentation on 'how I done it'. They've replied to say the partners and team are all very impressed, and whilst they can't fit in a slot for me to come in and talk to them, they have asked for a written presentation to be sent to them, so that's something.

    I'll do something (in PowerPoint) over the next few days, and anyone on here who wants a copy to adapt for their own use will be welcome.

    Thanks Rod. I'd like to take a look at it when complete. If it's anything like your Low Carb post, it'll knock their socks off !

    I've now done a draft but will sit on it a couple of days.

    If anyone wants a copy (and feedback would be welcome) send me an email to rod dot cameron at btinternet dot com and say if you want a pdf or a PowerPoint file (the latter if you want to use it as a template for your own). Or if you're still on DCUK send me a PM there.

    Just read through Rod's excellent presentation I just hope his surgery takes it on board, Paul mentioned anecdotal evidence but when his Doctors have actually seen the results of Rod's blood tests and weight loss I think it goes beyond that.

    Thanks for the PDF Rod  Very Happy

    Thanks Rod. Not sure when your surgery are going to take a look at it but let us know what they think of it.
