The Annual SHOT Symposium 2017 will take place at Rothamsted Centre for Research and Enterprise, Harpenden, Hertfordshire AL5 2JQ on Wednesday 12 July 2017.
We have a stimulating programme for the day including an interactive session for everyone to get involved and examples of ‘best practice’, steps that you have taken to improve transfusion safety. Our keynote speaker is Phil Hammond on Patient Safety.
Phil Hammond is an NHS doctor, campaigner, health writer, investigative journalist, broadcaster, speaker and comedian. He has done all these jobs imperfectly and part-time since 1987, and was also a lecturer in medical communication at the Universities of Birmingham and Bristol.
The subsidised delegate fee is £110 this year – please complete the application form which is available on the SHOT website
(https://www.shotuk.org/events-2/annual-shot-symposium/) by Friday 30 June 2017 .
The deadline for abstract submission is Friday 28 April 2017 – instructions can be found on the website (https://www.shotuk.org/wp-content/uploads/Instructions-for-abstract-submission-to-SHOT-Symposium-12-July-2017.pdf). The best abstract will be allocated an oral slot.
Following the success of the Breakfast meeting last year, we will be holding a pre-symposium breakfast session from 08:30am – 09:30 am where you can ‘Ask the Experts’ who analyse SHOT data and write the report. Spaces are limited. Please see booking conditions on the Symposium application form.
