The 2019 Annual Symposium on women’s health is open to all healthcare professionals – GPs, clinic doctors, gynaecologists, specialist and practice nurses, SRH specialists, trainees and anyone allied to the health profession with an interest in women’s health.

The comprehensive programme is both interesting and informative, with presentations from internationally renowned experts.

We are delighted that Kathy Abernethy, Chairman of the British Menopause Society, is to give the Gerald Swyer Memorial Lecture, Menopause – a workplace issue? 

Speakers include: Dr Heather Currie, Mr Haitham Hamoda, Professor Anthony Howell, Dr Tina Peers, Dr John Stevenson and Chief Inspector Clara Williams and PC Elaine Monaghan from Greater Manchester Police.

The format provides delegates with the opportunity to network with speakers and colleagues from primary and secondary care alike – and to raise queries, questions and seek advice from our specialist panel, especially on difficult or complex cases.

The Symposium is accredited for 6 hours CPD/CME, to meet your points target before the end of the year.
