Sub-speciality 'Fight night' & TAVI training day

Dear all

Just a quick reminder to sign up to these two events:

Sub-speciality fight night is on the evening of 7th of Feb at the Green Man in Winchester. We are now getting down to the last few spaces for this event which should be an excellent evening with lots of key players from the region attempting to convince us of the merits of their specialty.

TAVI training day is on the 27th of Feb at the Bartley Lodge in Cadnam, this looks like an excellent training day organised by the TAVI team at UHS.

Sign up to both of these events by emailing me jwh20485@gmail.com

Dear all

Hayley from Servier has emailed me with details of a course run by Servier in conjunction with the BJCA for trainees within 18 months of CCT entitled 'Preparing to be a consultant' on the 8th of February.

Wessex Valve training day

Dear all

I hope you are all settling into your new jobs!

Dr Rawlins has now confirmed details for the Wessex Valve day. This is on the 27th of February and should be an excellent day covering all aspects of TAVI relevant to our training. It is going to be held at Bartley Lodge in Cadnam with registration from 0930. The program looks great - click here to view! Please let your new trusts know so that you can secure study leave and email me to sign up jwh20485@gmail.com. Please also check the training day page so as to let your trusts know the dates so that you can secure your time.


Next evening event -sub-specialty fight night

Dear all

I hope you are enjoying the festive break - as our gift to you we have arranged the next evening event on the 7th of February at the Green Man in Winchester! The event will pit sub-specialty consultants  (confirmed so far: Dr Calver (UHS - intervention), Dr Paisey (UHS - EP), Dr Haydock (UHS - HF), Dr Freestone (Imaging HHFT), with ACHD to be confirmed) against each other to attempt to persuade us as to why their sub-specialty is best! This will be followed by dinner. It should be a light hearted event but will also give those of you who haven't decided on your sub-specialty an opportunity to chat to leaders in each field to gain insight into what their sub-specialty is like and what is required to be successful in that area.

This event is sponsored by Tim at BMS. We have tried to secure as many spaces as possible but as always spaces are limited -  if you would like to sign up please email me jwh20485@gmail.com

Happy New Year!
