Symposium Registration


After an inexplicable 'glitch' this morning, I have now opened registration for the 12th November "Impact of the Barnes Review on Quality Management" Symposium!

Places are likely to go quite quickly, so early registration is recommended.

Best wishes



Membership expiry & renewal


I have manually expired all those whose membership expires tomorrow, as last year this did not seem to work automatically!

There are a few people whose membership has been extended to next year and they have already been informed by email.

Online payment problem


Just a heads-up that a glitch has occurred following some changes we made to our PayPal account settings recently.  On checkout, the option to pay with a credit card seems to have disappeared!

We are on the case and hope to have this sorted out before the subscription year ends and the Symposium registration opens.

Please bear with us!



David Burnett's Book Highly Commended


I thought you would like to know that David's book - A Practical Guide to ISO 15189 in Laboratory Medicine, ACB Venture Publications, 2013 ISBN: 9780902429499 - was highly commended in the BMA Medical Book Awards.

We are now on Twitter!

Dear colleagues,

My daughter Sarah, who designed, set up and helps maintain our website, has persuaded me that AQMLM really needs to be on Twitter, so I set up an account yesterday - @AQMLMorg - and have started tweeting with links to interesting articles and news of the Symposium.

So if you are on Twitter, please follow us!

Best wishes,


Subscription renewals

Hello everyone!

I hope all is well and you managed a decent break before resuming work at the coal face!

At the end of this month, membership subscriptions will become due, so I will be bulk emailing various groups of people over the next week to give instructions and advice.

A number of people who attended the July 8th 2014 Seminar will benefit from our rule that non-members attending events after July 1st have their membership renewed for the following year, so they will not incurr a further fee.  I will be emailing them separately.

November's Symposium


I am very pleased that the programme for the "Impact of the Barnes Review on Quality Management" Symposium on November 12th 2014 is coming together nicely now.  You can see the latest news on the Forthcoming Events page.

I will open registration in September and may combine it with membership subscription renewals, which will work out slightly cheaper than making separate purchases.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

All the best from me and the rest of the AQMLM team!



Website Host Migration


(For those of you who like this sort of thing!)

I am pleased to announce that we have successfully migrated from Plusnet Pay As You Host to Clook Internet for our website hosting service.  Thank you for bearing with us during the migration last week (you may have noticed that the site disappeared for a little while as the name servers refreshed).

Various things

Hello again

We have just had a very busy season of seminars, which, by all accounts, have been quite successful.  The '3 for 2' special offer worked well for 30 or so members, so we will definitely do that again next year!  

We have taken note of some comments that we have been rather too numeric-discipline focussed in our approach this year, and aim to address this with a special day for the non-numeric dsiciplines in our proposed meeting programme.  If you have ideas for this, please let us know.

Seminar on 13th May 2014

Dear Colleagues

I hope you enjoyed the Bank Holiday and perhaps were riveted to the snooker final as I was!

All is more or less in place for next Tuesday's seminar.  We have 56 persons attending and registration will close tomorrow (7th May) probably.

I have sent out a bulk email to everyone on my list (except for those registering today - 6th May) so if you have not received this and think you should have, please email me immediately!  I'll catch up with the last few late registrants during the rest of the week.

Best wishes
