About this event

  • Date and time Fri 12 May 2023 from 8:30am to 5:45pm
  • Location Aviator
  • Organised by Urology

The 2023 President’s day meeting will take place at the Aviator hotel in Hampshire and will focus on sustainability as a path to improving training quality, work environment and patient care.

Sustainability is key to our continued success as a population. During this meeting, we will explore how innovative hospital design can improve patient outcomes whilst reducing environmental impact. We will also discuss techniques to improve individual resilience and the ability to deal with challenges, which are both necessary skills in the modern healthcare workforce.

During this meeting, the Malcolm Coptcoat spring short papers prize and the Secretary's prize will both be presented.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Consider the challenges of sustainability for individuals, training and organisations
  • Understand the implications of challenge and change
  • Look to the future of developments within training and healthcare


Booking options include the choice to book the President's day meeting, a hotel room at Aviator hotel in Hampshire, and a delicious black-tie dinner. If you would like your partner to attend the dinner, please contact customer service on 020 7290 3941.
