Organiser Testimonial
Paula Drummond, Consultant Paediatrician, said: “We chose to bring the conference to Newcastle to showcase both the new Children’s hospital but also the excellent Paediatrics we have in the North of England.

“By bringing the conference to Newcastle we had access to excellent speakers that could easily attend and deliver their presentation yet still return to work if necessary. Delegate also benefitted from easy access to the conference, excellent transport links and reasonable cost hotels. Delegates were also able to experience the new local Children’s hospital first hand.”
