".... the meeting programme struck the perfect balance between research, scientific and clinically relevant material that can be transferred to patient care immediately"
As it is still uncertain whether face to face meetings may be possible by the Summer, HEART UK are converting their annual conference to a purely virtual programme and invite you to participate from the safety and comfort of your own home or business.
Launching on Wednesday 7 July, followed by two virtual sessions per subsequent week, for two weeks. All sessions will be live streamed.
