Beautiful Brighton……a great place for a conference
The annual NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows (ACFs) conference was held at the Grand Hotel in Brighton, 17th -18th March 2016.
Keele was well represented with five ACFs from across the four years attending, including:
Emily Wersocki (ST4) gave an excellent presentation on her work with CPRD exploring the effect of long term opioids for non-cancer pain, on menstrual irregularities and the menopause. Emily will be applying for an In-Practice Fellowship this time round aiming to extend this work.
Dinner on the Pier at The Palm Court Fish and Chip restaurant was an experience, and some of us saw more of Brighton than others.
As usual, the standard of all the presentations was excellent and the opportunity for networking was much appreciated. I think we can say that the future of academic general practice is safe in the hands of these enthusiastic, motivated and very clever ACFs who made the trip to sunny Brighton.
