Winter Scientific Meeting 2021

January 2021

WSMHeader2021b

WSM is the largest annual educational event for our speciality in the UK, with more than 1,100 attendees. In observance with Government guidance in relation to COVID-19, we continue to review and evolve our plans for forthcoming Association educational events, including WSM 2021. It has become increasingly clear that holding a meeting of this size in its usual format in London, in early January will not be possible.

We are looking to re-imagine the Association’s flagship conference and deliver an exciting new concept that will open WSM’s hugely popular educational programme to a wider audience of anaesthetists.

While it may look different from previous years, we will be hosting a new-look WSM 2021 in early January (likely to be  week commencing 11 January 2021) that delivers  high-quality educational experiences along with great networking opportunities and new ways to learn and support your professional development.

Make sure you submit your abstract today for the conference for your chance to be published in an online supplement of the journal Anaesthesia.

Register your interest to be kept up to date with the latest developments for the new-look WSM 2021


**WSM 2021 abstracts now open - submit your work by the deadline of 12 August 2020**

We have taken the decision to postpone this year's Trainee Conference. The new date for Trainee Conference Newcastle will be 7-9 July 2021, and will be held at St. James' Park Newcastle Upon Tyne. 

This decision was made in light of the on-going global COVID-19 situation and our wish to reduce the risk to our members, the specialty and the public. All registered delegates, faculty and exhibitors have been contacted.
