The meeting was granted 10 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

The meeting also marked the Diamond Jubilee of the PPS.

The meeting was held at the famous International Conference Centre (ICC) in the heart of the city, next to the restored canals and close to all of Birmingham’s amenities, hotels and shopping.

The programme offered something for everyone, with two symposia, a slide seminar and two keynote lectures.  A large number of abstracts for the scientific sessions were submitted and the programme was of a high standard.

The Reception took place in the new Birmingham Library.  The Gala Dinner was held in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.  During the reception of which the famous Pre-Raphaelite Gallery of the Museum was open for a private viewing.

Please take a look at the gilded bronze statue of Matthew Boulton, James Watt and William Murdock the genius industrialists and entrepreneurs who contributed tot he fame of Birmingham and whom we chose to be the logo of the meeting and whom we pictured on our commemorative medal.

Birmingham is a great base for exploring the historic towns of the Midlands, and the beautiful countryside or a starting point for a tour of the UK.

We hope you enjoyed your visit.
