This meeting is free for patients, family members and carers to attend.

The Medicine and Me series of meetings aim to update us all on important medical conditions and gives a direct voice to patients and their carers to share their concerns on the impact of diagnosis, investigation and management.

Physicians, Surgeons and indeed all healthcare professionals continue to learn from and be inspired to greater efforts by our patients to improve care.

The audience at this meeting will comprise of those living with polycystic ovary syndrome, their families, carers and advocates, representing about 70% of those present; and clinicians and researchers, representing not more than 30%. Clinicians will include doctors, specialist nurses and others involved in the treatment and care of those who have this condition.
