Wessex Cardiology Trainees

BCIS Autumn Meeting - 2nd October 2015

Dear All,

Apologies, but due to an oversight on my part I am publicising this at rather short notice. The meeting is to be held at Basingstoke and will constitute the October Wessex training day.

The BCS has advertised this course, and hopefully, interventional types will be well aware of it and planning to attend. It is free to BCIS members, but there is a joining fee of £50 which could be recouped from study budgets as necessary.

Registration is required and places are still available - please follow this link. The programme can also be accessed there - unfortunately, I cannot upload it from work but a text version is shown below.
