8th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Cardiorenal Forum - Friday 4th October 2013

The Cardiorenal Forum (CRF) is an independent group formed in 2006, and includes Paul Kalra from Portsmouth. The key objective of the group is to highlight the important clinical overlap that exists between patients presenting with a primary cardiovascular or renal problem.

The Annual Meeting is open to all with an interest in this field. In previous years Wessex trainees have found this event very enjoyable.

Details of this year's meeting are available here:

URGENT!!!! Call for support

Dear Wessex trainee,
The BSH board elections are happening as we speak. All BSH members would have received voting papers in the mail. There are 3 candidates local people standing for election. Paul Kalra is standing for deputy chair, I am standing for counsel and Jayne Masters (SUHT senior HF nurse) is also standing for counsel. I think it is really important that we try to get local reps onto the board to maintain a national profile for wessex. In addition it will prevent the centralisation of control to London centres.
Thankfully, the voting process allows you to vote for dep chair and 3 different counsellors so you won't need to choose between us!!. I'm told that very few votes are actually returned so 1 or 2 could make a big difference. If you are a BSH member please remember to vote!!
