Anaesthesia Critical Care Pain Update

The idea behind this annual event is to have an educational break in a healthy environment, to meet and exchange views with some of your old and new colleagues, to attend a unique, stimulating multi-disciplinary conference and to get fit and healthy taking advantage of the excellent sporting facilities available in the resort. You can then return to work full of energy, ready to implement the knowledge that you acquired on the course.

This meeting is usually approved for 15 hours of CPD. 


Confirmed speakers: Tony Absalom, Anne Batchelor, Sean Bennett, Anthony Gordon, William Harrop-Griffith, Katherine Henderson, Beverley Hunt, David Nott, Vivienne Parry, Alison Pittard, Terence Stephenson, Laszlo Vutskis, Tom Woolley and Carl Waldmann among many others.
