Community Child Health has been running for 20 years and continues to offer the latest developments in a wide range of topics across the specialty. It is one of The Symposium Office’s most popular meetings.

This year the conference is taking place online only, this is due to the current situation with Covid-19.

This conference is valuable to all doctors caring for children in the community setting. This 2-day course will help delegates to update their knowledge across a variety of topics relevant to Community Paediatrics. It combines clinically-focused, evidence-based updates with national guidance and strategy, as well as some personal perspectives, in order for community paediatricians to learn about the latest developments in community child health.

Registration fee: Consultant: £295 (2 Days); Specialty and Associate Specialist (SAS)/Trainee/other professionals: £260 for two days. £150 for one-day attendance (a member of staff will be in contact with you  to confirm which day you select)

We are currently in the process of confirming the programme this will be available shortly.
