This year the BSCA is delighted to once again be holding the meeting jointly with the Dowling Club as we have previously in 2010 and virtually in 2021. We are pleased to be back to the in-person meeting format, and trust you will find the programme interesting and informative, and the time spent with colleagues at Crewe Hall Hotel both educational and enjoyable.

We have been fortunate to secure sponsorship from several pharmaceutical companies and we thank them for their support, and encourage you to visit them at the exhibition stands.

The biennial update meeting attracts 9 CPD points, and full registration for this 2-day programme includes accommodation and dinner on Friday 29th September 2023. Dowling Oration will be delivered during dinner on Friday evening and live streaming or recoded options are being explored for those who cannot attend the oration in person. The registration desk will be manned throughout the meeting, so please do not hesitate to stop by if there is anything we can do for you.

For more information, please visit the event website.

NB: there is a discount for members, so it is a great opportunity to encourage your colleagues to apply for BSCA membership!
