Pegasus Small Group Education Programme – South Tyneside, UK

The Pegasus Small Group education programme provides evidence-informed education for primary health professionals. Material is developed by the Pegasus team, who connect with Clinical Leaders and HealthPathways editors in South Tyneside to ensure content is specific to the region. Topics covered are relevant to primary care and focus on improved patient outcomes and making optimal use of health resources.

How it works

Training consists of groups of 12-15 healthcare professionals. Groups meet online or in person 5-6 times per year and sessions are facilitated by a trained Small Group Leader.

South Tyneside Small Group Education

The North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (NENC ICB) have partnered with Pegasus Health to deliver Small Group Education for primary health clinicians in the South Tyneside area.  This partnership follows the successful delivery of two pilot education programmes that covered 9 different education topics. Some of the most recent topics delivered in the second pilot included ‘Eating disorders’, ‘Access to Care’ and ‘Grief and Loss’.

Upcoming topics 2023:


Although there is an entrenched cultural belief that more medicine is better and earlier intervention is better, there is increasing recognition that this is not necessarily the case. The law of diminishing returns shows that initial health investment creates substantial benefits, but with increasing input this effect levels off before potentially falling. The reasons overdiagnosis occurs and the interplay of factors that drive it are complex.

Ageing Well

Focusses on how primary care can support patients to age well. Included is a focus on dementia, discussions about driving, social connectedness, ageism, elder sexual health, elder abuse, cultural aspects of ageing, planning including advanced care plans & enduring power of attorney, identifying frail patients, NSAIDs and pain management in the elderly, carer stress.

The sessions are multi-disciplinary and open to all practitioners working in primary health.
