November Symposium cancellation

I very much regret that we have had to cancel the planned 2012 Symposium on "The Contribution of the Diagnostic Industry to Laboratory Quality" on 28th November.

Whereas I had a positive response from all the company staff I spoke to at ACB Focus in May, this did not translate into any company putting up a speaker.  In fact a significant number did not even have the courtesy to reply to my emails!

Management Review Workshop - outcome


From the evaluation forms received, I think we can allow ourselves a modest pat on the back.  Pretty nearly everyone was really happy with the day!

We need more suggestions from you for other Workshops we might hold!

Our next event is the Symposium in November - details will emerge in dues course on the Forthcoming Events page.

All the best,

EQAS 2012 Edinburgh

I thought you would like to know that there is to be another three-day endocrinology and immunoassay meeting in the same series as my colleagues and I organised in the 90's. 

This meeting covers theoretical, clinical and practical aspects of the fileds covered by the UK NEQASs for thyroid, steroid and peptide hormones.  Scientific, medical and technical staff from clinical laboratories and the diagnostic industry are warmly welcomed.

There are still plenty of places left for the Workshop on 25th April.  We would like this to be fully subscribed, so please do not leave it too late to register!

Management Review Workshop

I hope you have all enjoyed your break!

I have just fleshed out the Programme for our Management Review Workshop on the 25th April on the Forthcoming Events page. 

We are delighted to have Phil Shread from CPA as our keynote speaker!  Mark Smith (West Midlands Group representative on the AQMLM Board) will give the other formal presentation in the morning. 

Delegates will break up in groups in the afternoon to discuss the nitty gritty of Management Review.
