about this event

Online registration has closed. Spaces available to register on the day.

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 who have been affected by sepsis, 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 diagnosis, treatment and care of sepsis.
