Next course 11-12 June 2018, Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh

We’re delighted to confirm that the 2018 course will feature Prof Heidi Connolly (Director of the Congenital Centre and Education Chair, Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, Rochester) along with high profile UK speakers.


The programme changes every year – we use a clinical case based format where possible with a large number of video demonstrations and interactive workshop sessions. We have an interactive audience voting system which is hugely popular with our delegates.


This meeting is held in the excellent Norton House Hotel which is only 5 minutes away from Edinburgh Airport and is easily accessible by road and rail links. Free car parking is provided and a discounted accommodation code has been negotiated if rooms are booked beforehand.
