Bandolier Conference on Stroke: what to do second - optimising secondary prevention and follow-up care programme


Stroke: what to do second - optimising secondary prevention and follow-up care was the subject of a Bandolier conference in London in March, and we have been asked to revisit the topic again, but in Manchester. The date is Thursday December 16, and the venue is the Stopford Room, Refectory Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester. The cost to NHS or university folk is £100, and for the private sector £250. A small number of reduced price places will be available for students. Fax Eileen Neail on 01865 226978, or call on 01865 226132, and she will send registration forms.
