Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Coronary training day and BJCA survey

Hi all

It is now just under six weeks until the coronary training day at UHS on the 1st of April. Thanks so much to those who have already contacted me to sign up. The day is free and we have an excellent group of speakers, click here for the provisional program. If you'd like to come please email me (jwh20485@gmail.com) as soon as possible so we can ensure we have the right amount of food!

Also the BJCA survey is now live. This really helps the BJCA to get an idea of what is working well and what needs improving, it would be great if everyone could find the few minutes it takes to complete it. To further encourage you to complete the survey, the BJCA are offering free ESC registration to a lucky few . Click here to access the survey.

The STC meeting (where all the training leads in the region meet to discuss our training) is coming up on the 1st of March, if there are any issues you'd like us to raise please contact me (jwh20485@gmail.com).
