Welcome Reception

Monday 30th June 2008, from 7.30pm
Come and join us for an informal event at the Conference venue, the prestigious Royal College of Physicians.
The aim of this event is to enable delegates to get together informally before the main Conference begins, to meet up with old friends and perhaps make some new ones. Drinks and a light buffet will be served.
Tickets are complimentary to Full delegates, but please indicate at the time of registering whether or not you wish to attend.

Jazz Bar Get Together
- £15 per ticket

Tuesday 1st July 2008

With the huge wealth of places to enjoy in London, participants will
not have trouble in finding somewhere to eat and enjoy themselves,
but we thought that it might be a nice idea to have a place where
we can get together perhaps for a late drink, in central London.

Set in the heart of Mayfair, the Dover Street Restaurant and Jazz
Bar offers a combination of French/European cuisine and nightly
live music ranging from Jazz and Blues to Latin and Soul, with
dancing to a resident DJ until late (if you wish!).

Dinner is served from 6pm on weekdays and after 10pm there is a
music cover charge for those wishing to come and enjoy the music
and dancing and have a drink in one of the three bars.

Tickets are NOT included in the Registration Fee. Please indicate
at the time of registering whether or not you wish to attend.
Ticket price of £15 includes entry to the Bar and two Drinks
Vouchers. Additional guests are welcome.
