South West & Wessex Region: Scientific Meetings 

Details of previous and forthcoming SWW regional scientific meetings are held on this page. Where speakers have agreed, copies of their presentations are provided.

Friday 9th March 2018
"AGM, Audit and More!"
Half of the day will be dedicated to local, regional and national audits; followed by talks covering Calprotectin, anti-TNF therapy in Crohn's disease (PANTS) study and prescribing Healthcare Scientists. The end of the day will finish with a pilot ‘meet & greet’ to give more opportunity for all our members to network in this vast region.

As the afternoon will be of particular interest to Gastroenterologists and other non-Biochemistry staff, we have for this meeting created a half-day registration.
