Just wanted to thank you for publicising this meeting. We went along yesterday and found it very informative and interesting.

Not sure whether you were there but I did look out for you.

Best wishes Jenny :)

Hi Jenny

So glad you found it valuable - believe 200 people were there. I had another meeting to attend so unfortunately couldn't make this. We are waiting on summary of the content to publish soon.

Hi Pat,

Just wondering if this programme will be made available to regional endo. centres, as not everybody can travel to London due the expense and time?
This sounds like a critical service needed by some people and if it came to Belfast, I would make it my business to attend.
