Summary

Dear Colleagues,

I know that some of you were with us in Harrogate last month for the second RCP annual conference (and helped with the programme development). We were really pleased with the conference and have had some very positive feedback, with 94% of delegates rating the programme as good or very good and 93% saying they would attend again.

We are already planning the 2017 conference and ask that you save the date. ‘Medicine 2017: RCP annual conference’ will take place in Manchester (at Manchester Central) on 16-17 March 2017.

Once again, we envisage the conference being amongst the most important event of our calendar and the leading annual event of the year for our fellows and members. It will

  • Provide high quality education, professional development and CPD credits.
    • Present the latest cutting-edge research.
    • Showcase high quality national and international speakers.
    • Offer a platform to influence government and decision-makers.

As with the 2015 and 2016 conferences, we will build the programme and content from ideas and suggestions from the membership and others. To this end, we are inviting programme proposals from fellows, members and others and would really welcome ideas from the council members and officers. The programme will be split into four main streams:

  • Clinical – following delegate feedback, there will be twice as many clinical sessions in 2017 (with a reduction in the allocation of sessions to education, policy and research)
  • education, training and medical professionalism
  • health services and policy
  • research and innovation.

You can submit your ideas via the attached proposal form and we would be grateful to receive these by midnight on 16 May 2016. I really do encourage you to get involved in shaping the programme.

We’re also delighted to let you know that we will be continuing the RCP Excellence in patient care awards at the 2017 conference. Find out more on the website. The closing date for applications is 1 October 2016. The awards ceremony will take place at the conference dinner at the end of the first day of the conference.

We encourage all council members to attend the conference so please do save the dates in your diaries.

Summary

 

The first Occupational and Environmental Exposure of Skin to Chemicals (OEESC) Conference took place in Washington in 2002. Since then it has occurred every 2-3 years and has become the premier platform for exchange of new scientific discoveries and practical ideas from all corners of the globe. The exchange of information from the multidisciplinary participants has enabled steps forward in prevention of ill health due to skin exposure. The next OEESC conference will take place 19th -21st September 2016 in Manchester.

The next conference will again bring together a wide range of disciplines and knowledge recognising the reality that it is an individual’s skin 24 hours a day and not simply whilst they are at work. Through increased communication between occupational and non-occupational fields, with the great levels of expertise that both these have attained, we can develop ways in which overall awareness of skin exposure issues can be increased and ultimately long term improvements in the reduction of damage to health due to skin exposure.

Dr Julia Schofield and the Dowling Club are pleased to invite you to a business and interview skills course being held in Willan House in London on 5th and 6th May.

The course is split into two parts: business skills for the first part and interview skills for the second. Delegates can attend the whole event or just the business skills. Business skills and knowledge of wider aspects of the NHS are part of the Dermatology trainee curriculum and this course brings expert speakers together to help fulfil this requirement. Interview skills are invaluable for a successful consultant application and this part of the course aims to mimic that process closely with interview panels and sessions to ensure candidates are given a realistic experience of the interview process.

On the Thursday night after the first day of the course there will be a Dowling Club meal held in the George Inn in Southwark. The pub has a long history of association with the Dowling Club as journal clubs and meetings were held there in the early days of the Dowling Club in the 1940s. The meal will be open to all members of the Dowling Club and will be an excellent chance to meet colleagues and enjoy a meal.

The organisers hope that they will be in receipt of sponsorship from pharmaceutical companies and that therefore the meeting will represent excellent value!

In 2015 the meeting will host the THESIS meeting on Monday morning, welcoming current and aspiring dermatological trainees to the world of skin sciences.
The formal meeting will then follow from 2.00pm including the Skin Club Symposium in the afternoon.

The Scientific Programme for the meeting features great National and International guest speakers including Prof Stephen Holgate (UK), Prof Antony Young (UK), Prof Hodivala-Dilke (UK) and Prof Tim Elliott (UK).

The skin club this year will explore the role of the microbe interaction with skin and we are very fortunate to have such eminent speakers:
Prof Yasmine Belkaid (USA), Dr Jeremy Webb (UK), Prof Harri Alenius (Finland).

Prof John McGrath will also speak on behalf of Prof Robin Eady (BSID medal winner).


The meeting will follow similar lines to previous years but we hope that the hotel setting this year will mean more time for interaction.

The annual dinner will be fantastic in the Grand Café in the relaxed but classical atmosphere http://www.grand-cafe.co.uk/home 

The ‘Grand Cafe’ is a venue steeped in history, a grade II listed building dating back to 1865 which acted as the official on shore accommodation for passengers of the RMS Titanic.  Tickets are priced at £40.00.

All in all this is a meeting not to be missed.

Summary

For Full details please visit: www.wccs2014.org 

From September 3rd to 6th 2014, the 15th World Congress on Cancers of the Skin (WCCS 2014) will take place for the first time in the UK, in Edinburgh, capital of Scotland. Scotland is of course a country where skin cancer rates, in a fair-skinned population accustomed to sunny holidays and often ill-advised sunbed use, are of major concern.

The 15th WCCS will therefore appropriately consider all aspects of this subject, from the clinical, histological and genetic nature of these cancers, to how best to prevent and treat them. Addressing this major issue will be a superior faculty of speakers drawn from all of the UK, continental Europe, the USA, Canada, Africa, South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, clearly demonstrating the thoroughly global importance of the topic. The venue for this signal event will be the superbly suitable Edinburgh International Congress Centre (EICC) situated in the city centre.



 

Early September is usually a great time of the year in Edinburgh, the historic and picturesque home of Scotland's famous cultural heritage, characterised superbly by a landmark castle on a cliff top, the British royal family's former Royal Yacht Britannia, and many architecturally beautiful buildings. Social events in absolutely excellent settings will accompany the congress, while the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe will just precede the event, and a host of tours both before and after it will suit both sightseer and sportsman. In addition, Edinburgh is the gateway to a host of world-renowned golf courses and major scenic attractions, all of which will be easily accessible to conference delegates both before and after the congress.


 

Given the major worldwide importance in incidence, morbidity, mortality and cost to society of skin cancer, this event will attract a very large number of delegates from all over the globe, and we invite you to join them. Please do indicate your preliminary interest by sending your details to wccs2014@bad.org.uk, though this will of course not commit you further. Updates on the Congress will be regularly provided on the website.



I do hope we shall see you at the meeting for this major academic event, with social and sightseeing opportunities to match. 

Very best wishes.

Professor Alex Anstey (Secretary General)

Summary

The 94th Annual Meeting of the BAD will see us return to the city of Glasgow, the venue for the 2009 meeting. Once again we will be in the award winning Scottish Exhibition & Convention Centre. 

Glasgow is a city with everything to offer. It is Scotland's cultural capital and one of the most dynamic cities in Europe: steeped in culture, rich in history, with elegant streets, squares, parks and gardens; the name Glasgow actually means 'dear green place'. What's more, it's one of the UK's finest Victorian cities with magnificent architecture everywhere you look. The respected Lonely Planet guide recently said of the city: "Glasgow is regenerating and evolving at a dizzying pace. Its Victorian architectural legacy is now swamped with cutting-edge style bars and world-class venues to tickle your taste buds. The city is going through a long-term transformation, evident along the revitalised River Clyde."

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME

Building on its reputation as a high quality internationally renowned event, the BAD is delighted to announce the Annual Meeting for 2014. The annual meeting committee has again worked hard to provide a blend of new scientific presentations with updates from experts in various fields. We are pleased to announce that the Arthur Rook Oration will be delivered by Dr Rachael Clark from Boston, USA. Professor Robert Moots from Liverpool and Professor Amrinder Kanwar from India will give the first of the guest lectures at the plenary session on Tuesday speaking on 'Behçet's'disease, diagnosis and managemen' and 'Vitiligo in India' respectively. Wednesday's programme features Professor Sir Ian Kennedy  who will update the BAD membership on Professional Regulation. The final guest lecture will come from Professor Vinod Sharma , who will talk during the CPD session on Thursday afternoon speaking on 'Photodermatoses in pigmented skin'. 

We will have a new Commonwealth session on Wednesday morning and following feedback from the 2013 evaluation we have spread the Special Interest Groups to offer a better balance to the three days. please also look out for the new 'Hot topics' and 'Pharma Workshop'.

On Monday 30th June we will be holding pre-conference sessions for trainees, Specialty & Associate Specialist doctors, medical students and there will be a BSD self assessment session. Socially, the Annual Dinner will be at the Kelvingrove Museum on Wednesday evening, with a Welcome Reception in the Glasgow Science Centre on the Tuesday evening.
