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
