Presentation by Anna Athow, retired surgeon and BMA member, on NHS England’s 5 year forward view.

If you are thinking of using the car park, please allow yourself time to network. It is a short walk down the hill to the venue. For those coming by train, trains run very regularly to and from Leeds, if you have to change there.
