Clinical Engineering Conference 2019

Description

The NPAG Clinical Engineering North and South Best Value Groups are two expert groups, enabling NHS Clinical Engineers to meet and share new ideas, discuss common problems, measure service provider’s performance, provide cost effective solutions, be creative and innovative in service design and network with others involved in this complex area.

Both groups are aligned with common meeting agendas which include standard items such as identifying cost saving initiatives helping departments to save money – which easily accounts for the membership fee.

Membership consists of three meetings and attendance to the annual NPAG Clinical Engineering Conference, supported and driven by the members. The conference this year will take place on Tuesday 24th September 2019 at the Wolverhampton Racecourse.

IBMS Biomedical Science Congress

Description

Linking Learning to the Laboratory

The IBMS Biomedical Science Congress is an ideal way for all practicing biomedical scientists top update their scientific, professional and product knowledge via the combination of an extensive programme and a major exhibition.

The 2019 programme of lectures, presentations and workshops showcases the increasing breadth of biomedical science, featuring all key disciplines (including molecular pathology), covering key areas such as quality management, education and training.

The programme also reflects the growth of point-of-care testing by devoting a whole day to the subject. Another new addition is the first-ever veterinary biomedical science programme that will appeal to everyone – not just those working in veterinary laboratories.

The Exhibition is the UK’s largest showcase featuring many of the leading companies and organisations displaying and demonstrating instrumentation, equipment & professional services. There is no charge to attend the Exhibition and there is also a 3-day programme of content that is free-to-attend.

The Exhibition combines business, networking and social exchange and enables delegates to view new equipment and products, extend general awareness of techniques and technologies, and make contact with representatives of the exhibiting companies.
