Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital wows local GPs with full day conference at Duxford Imperial War Museum

October 2011

On Saturday 24th 2011 September Spire Cambridge Lea hosted their second annual GP Conference at Duxford Imperial War Museum, Cambridge.

The day was a fantastic success with over 130 GPs attending. The all day event consisted of a series of 19 lectures and workshops with subjects including advances in spinal surgery, the modern management of hernias, HRT and contraception masterclass, balance workshop and many more.

GPs attended from local areas including Cambridge, Bedford, Peterborough and as far away as London.

We would like to thank the Pharmaceutical companies who sponsored our event, the companies included:

  • Leo Pharma
  • Chiesi Limited
  • Astellas Pharma Ltd
  • Abbott Laboratory Ltd

A big thank you to Duxford Imperial War Museum, all of the Consultants who delivered the education and of course the GPs who attended.

"Following-on from last year's successful GP Conference, Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital organised another one-day GP Education event, which was very well-attended again, with GP delegates coming from all over the region.  It was held in the wonderful Conference Centre at Duxford Imperial War Museum, which proved a very popular setting, enabling the delegates to visit the fascinating displays during the lunch break, which they very much appreciated.  A wide-ranging number of medical topics was covered by local specialists and the sessions appeared to be very well-received by the delegates.  Medical education provided by Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital is important both in terms of GP CPD in general but also in terms of making GP's aware of what treatment options are available locally, which is an essential part of a GP's knowledge base when it comes to referring patients."
Dr Paul Silverston, Newmarket
