Add event to calendar vCal
This year our meeting will be held on 16/17th September at the Palace Hotel, Manchester. We are delighted to be able to offer an exciting programme delivered by a number of national and  international experts. In addition a comprehensive master class programme is running on the preceding day with content targeted at all members of the PICU team.

The main conference has  a strong theme running through each day. We anticipate that these will be of interest to colleagues in associated disciplines as well as the core intensive care team. On Thursday 16th the morning focuses on metabolic medicine in PICU. The theme naturally flows into an afternoon exploring non-cardiac extra-corporeal therapies beginning with CVVH and continuing with an update on liver support and extracorporial lung assist. The day will close following what is likely to be a lively debate exploring the appropriateness of offering PICU support to children with progressive metabolic disease. On day two the focus shifts to trauma initially following a burns theme and moving onto exploration of the organizational elements required to deliver a high quality national trauma service.

We look forward to welcoming you to our meeting. Manchester is  a vibrant city with a niche for everyone. By day there are great art galleries, museums and Shopping (on the days either side of the conference)! By night there are restaurants to suit every taste and budget, theatres offering debut shows to classical opera, the internationally acclaimed Bridgewater Concert Hall and a dazzling array of nightclubs for those with the energy to keep going into the small hours. In addition to this the Peak & Lake district national parks are only a short distance away. You might consider combining your visit with a few days enjoying one of these areas.
