It’s been a tough year for medics with industrial action and the rising cost of living putting strain on us all.  As a result we’ve worked incredibly hard to not only keep costs down but significantly reduce ticket prices for the conference this year. We recognise that medics need support, inspiration and community – now more than ever.

So don’t delay – Buy now.
