Dear All

I am writing to let you know that the annual South Coast Heart Failure Meeting will be held on Tuesday 23rd April 2013 at the Haven Hotel, Sandbanks, Dorset.

Last years meeting was, once again, a tremendous success and was actually oversubscribed with record attendance by 96 medical delegates.  I have attached the preliminary timetable.  Places are limited on a ‘first come first serve’ basis and the registration deadline will be the 28th February 2013.

The meeting is free for delegates and all costs will be covered via sponsorship as for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 meetings. There is also a highly competitive overnight rate at the Haven Hotel if you wish to stay overnight (please quote this meeting).  There will be a number of industry sponsored stands to further enhance with the educational component of the meeting. We will be registering the meeting for at least 6 CPD points and you will receive a certificate for attendance.
