The conference will follow a hybrid format, with on-line and face-to-face access. Instructions to join the on-line sessions will be provided via e-mail closer to the event’s date. 

For those joining in person, the conference will take place at Liverpool Medical Institution (LMI), one of the oldest medical societies in the world. The LMI is in close proximity to the University of Liverpool and the Liverpool city centre.

Suggested Accommodation:

While there is plenty of hotel accommodation in Liverpool, we have suggested a few that we know are of good quality and offer a range of benefits and budgets. 
NB: Costs are only an indication from a recent search for April dates. 

Please note that room availability is limited for Friday 8th (Manchester United v Everton on 9th April) and so remaining rooms are much more expensive on this date.
