Dear STS member,

The Spring Meeting is on Friday 26th  April and is back to the tradtional model of an evening meeting followed by a daytime symposium.

The venue is Murrayshall House Hotel in Scone. The speakers are electric and the meeting promises to be inspiring and controversial, including Professor Robin Taylor an expert on monitoring chronic asthma using eNO and a debate around the use of orphan drugs in individualised medicine from the national CF group.

Get your abstracts in for both spoken and poster presentations and remember there are excellent cash prizes for the best presentations.

The closing date for your abstracts is Friday 5th April 2013 and these should be sent directly to myself via e-mail: mcs9h@clinmed.gla.ac.uk

We have pre-booked 30 rooms at Murrayshall House Hotel and these are available on a first come served basis so please don’t delay.  You can book your room by contacting Marlo. Tel No. 0141 211 3241/E-MailMarlo.Graham@ggc.scot.nhs.uk.

I enclose a booking form which should be completed and returned to Marlo by Wednesday 3rd April.

Many thanks


Seretary of STS
