Previous conference feedback

Our previous Hot Topics Conferences have been highly rated with delegates liking:

  • Relevant agenda with a final Q&A session to ask your own questions (anonymously if needs be)
  • Practical ideas to implement, inspirations for service development and opportunity to canvas opinions for your ‘what are others doing about this’ questions
  • Small conference size of about 30 people
  • Great opportunities to network, discuss and share ideas to help shape your own department policies

Who should attend?

The day is aimed at Medical Information managers, team leaders and more senior staff, but all are welcome.
