We have great pleasure inviting you to join your colleagues for the Seventh Annual Conference
Now in its seventh successful year, Issues & Answers in Cardiovascular Disease is an annual conference for primary care professionals dealing with the management of cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes and associated disorders. The 2018 event will be held at EMCC in Nottingham, 16-17 November. The event brings together the whole primary care team to hear and learn from an inspirational programme with expert speakers in an informal environment with lots of opportunity to share best practice with colleagues. Discounts apply for early bookings and the meeting represents great value with practical education plus 9 CPD points.
