The BSPD Midlands Branch invites you to join us in Birmingham for the BSPD Annual Conference 2019 which will be held in the Repertory Theatre in the heart of the City. 

The theme for the conference is “Hearts and Minds”.  We are privileged in Birmingham to host a world-leading Children’s Hospital and are delighted to welcome our cardiology colleagues and leading specialists in the area to share their knowledge and experience in management of children with complex medical conditions.  Alongside this we will seek to explore mental health issues affecting children and the impact these can have on oral health.

We will also turn our attention to the importance of our own mental health, with sessions looking at preventing burnout and well-being within the workplace. This is fundamental for both our own overall health and providing quality care for our patients.

We look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant and diverse city for what promises to be a fantastic conference.
