The BPRS holds business meetings at the RCPCH spring meeting and at the BTS winter meeting.

You are invited to the British Paediatric Respiratory Society 20th Summer Symposium
This meeting is aimed at Respiratory Specialists, Trainees and AHPs and the theme this year may well be attractive to paediatricians practicing Respiratory medicine in various settings.
Dates: 28-29th June 2018
Venue: Umney Rooms, Robinson College, Cambridge
Theme of the meeting: “Can we, should we?”
These are tough times in the NHS – new therapies and treatments, increasing expectations and restrictive funding are causing considerable stress for all levels of staff. We have designed a programme that looks to explore some of those difficult areas – we hope it will be challenging and even controversial, but educational. Please join us – but be prepared to contribute!

Please pass onto your teams and your network colleagues.

Thank you
