Cath Lab Open Days 2016

We now have a program of cath lab open days set up throughout the year. These are aimed at senior cath lab staff, who are invited to spend a day looking around the facilities and discussing patient management at the host site. We are excited that a range of different labs have been willing to open their doors to share best practice.

How to register your interest? If you are interested in a visit to one of the below centres, there are places still available. Please contact asap direct the relevant centre contact(s) and ensure that you copy in BCIS into your communications so that we are aware. (It is not always the case that the advertised date/month is the only available time, you will be able to arrange a visit to a specific centre, but please ensure that your communications are clear and prompt with the centre and BCIS to avoid any disappointment).
