We offer full training both through e-learning and "classroom" sessions delivered via zoom. You will learn about how health and social care services are organised, about motor neurone disease, welfare benefits and healthcare in London. Opportunity to develop communication and listening skills and develop knowledge of MND.

What We're Looking For:
