Excitingly, the UKCS is coming back to Newcastle after a 20 year break! Much has changed in Newcastle as has our speciality since 1997.
Newcastle is easy to get to and now boasts urban sophistication with modern museums and boutique hotels and has a renowned vibrant night life supported by a large student population. Alongside, the city retains the strong dialect that closely represents the 1500 year old anglo-saxon left in England and a will provide a wonderful historical backdrop for the 24th UKCS Conference.
The Scientific Programme will draw on international opinion leaders supplemented by our local expertise, offering a programme of choice and significant presentations to enhance our practice as doctors, physios and specialist nurses.
The 2017 Meeting is working to host contributions to the Programme from sister organisations which we hope will be the start of many inter-society collaborations in the future.
There will be long days but full of interest.
We will be hosting a regional pre-Conference Urodynamics Course contributing to re-accreditation on day one too.
The Programme itself will offer debates, free communications, breakfast session, practical hands-on opportunities, keynotes and parallel sessions.
Then always important to UKCS is the networking: on the first evening there will be geordie hospitality with a reception involving participation and perhaps inter-hospital competition. The second evening will be the Conference Dinner in the Victorian splendour of the Assembly Rooms.
The Local Committee is determined to ensure a lot of pace in the Programme over three days, lots of choice, great medical advancement as well as lots of fun.
Please plan your abstracts and incorporate the UKCS Annual Conference in your CPD planning for 2017.
