Spr Club Autumn Meeting 2016 – Brighton

30 Aug

Registration for the Renal SpR Club Autumn meeting is now open- further details are attached (the times & dates for the speakers are subject to change).  This is going to be an excellent meeting and will be held in Brighton this year on 15th & 16th October 2016.  The theme for the meeting is Infections in Nephrology and we have some excellent speakers covering a wide range of topics.  If you have never been before or if you are new to the training scheme then try and get along- we always get excellent feedback.

The SpR Club has been running now for well over 20 years.  We attract a very high quality of speakers and the atmosphere is very relaxed and informal.  It is a great opportunity to meet other trainees from across the UK & Ireland with a 3 course meal and a few drinks in the evening.  For the absolute bargain of £75 you get lunch on arrival, coffee breaks, a 3 course dinner in the evening breakfast the next day and your very own hotel room.  You will even get to experience Muttley’s famous quiz.  Brighton is not as far as you think and only an hour from London and less than 30mins from Gatwick so well worth making the effort for.

We have limited capacity for this meeting and we expect it to sell out fast so please book early at:
