8-9 June 2017
The third annual Medicine24 conference will take place during Excellence in Healthcare 2017.
Providing up to date information on the optimal management of acutely ill patients within the first 24 hours, Medicine24 was a sell out in 2015 and 2016 and early booking is recommended.
Conference delegates will:
- Learn about state of the art updates on common medical conditions
- Develop understanding of how to provide optimal care for acutely ill patients
- Discuss the most up to date evidence based treatment approaches
- Hear expert opinion on challenges in frontline care
In addition to the main session topics we will be exploring the wider aspects of Medicine in a series of ‘the bigger picture’ talks.
Medicine24 is suitable for:
- Consultant physicians
- Trainee physicians
- SAS physicians

Feedback from our 2016 event
It was all excellent, especially for someone working in a specialty but who needs to be able to deal with other medical emergencies in their patients
Absolutely excellent meeting thank you. I return refreshed informed and impressed by RCPSG programme organisation and delivery of such a high standard. I have already recommended the next one to colleagues!
I thought it was very put together and a good variety of specialties and topics within
