Mortuary Managers Study Day 25th November 2017

AAPT run annual events for Mortuary Managers (or Senior APTs responsible for the day-to-day running of a mortuary).

This provides APTs with the opportunity to discuss and obtain support on non-technical management-related issues.

These roles can feel isolated, with little training available, and we recognise the importance of peer support. 

The 2017 event will be held in Hartlepool at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Jacksons Dock, on Saturday 25th November 2017 and is CPD credited for 4 credits.
