WICS Meetings

Each year we have a Summer symposium where a full day academic meeting is hosted by one of the units in Wessex. Details for the Summer Meeting on 5th June 2015 can be found here.

The programme includes both local and national experts and combines highly relevant clinical presentations, audits and research. We have a dedicated section for trainees to present their work and this can be case based, audit or research activity. The Scott Prize is judged by a panel and is awarded to the best trainee presentation each year. It is a prestigious and fitting award in memory of Dr Andrew Scott.

The day is completed with the very informative and entertaining Bruce lecture.

The Bruce lecture
In memory of Dr Rob Bruce. This presentation is delivered by one of our invited experts and is intentionally less clinically based but hugely thought provoking and stimulating. It is often the highlight of the WICS meeting and recent lectures include 'From Russia Without Love: the Litvinenko story' by Dr Geoff Bellingham, 'Space Exploration' by Dr Kevin Fong and 'Prime Suspect - tales from the trade' by Dr Basil Purdue!
