Very unimpressed with speaker!!!
1) Did she have something in her mouth while presenting e.g. chewing gum??
2) I'm watching (and paying) for an online module so would appreciate not referring to the "previous speaker".
3) She clearly seemed to have a negative, derogatory attitude about GPs not doing what she feels they should have done for HMB patients in their clinics. Might I suggest that I have to deal with enough attitude from patients during my day and I don't need more from people I am going to for help.
