Dear All,

We are most excited to welcome and invite you all to our first Joint Paediatric Allergy and Gastroenterology Meeting. A big thank-You to our host Dr Nick Ward, and a lot of credit due to Dr Lajeunesse for persisting with the idea finally bringing this to fruition this year. None of this would happen without Chris and Claire.

We have a wonderful programme with a number of regional paediatric speakers with a mixture of clinical, complex cases and research talks all accompanied by teas and lunch included.

Re your Name, Hospital, Contact and Meal choice (vegetarian – yes/no)

I have informally mentioned the meeting to our colleagues and there has already been a lot of interest in the meeting. No this is not the usual ‘enticement bit’ for the meeting, I suspect the interest genuinely reflects the case burdens in our clinics.

The Allergy and GI teams look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Please do not miss the early bird date.

Nick Ward, Nadeem Afzal, Mich Lajeunesse, Jennie Pridgeon, Chris Dyche & Claire Preston
