About the event

Dear Antrim Ballymena GPs, ANPs, and GPPs,

We are pleased to announce that the Antrim Ballymena GP Federation will be hosting an NB Medical Hot Topics event. Join us on Wednesday 15th May at Tullyglass House Hotel where registration will commence at at 1.15pm and teaching at 2pm, with the event concluding before 9pm. Upon arrival, refreshments will be available, and an evening meal will be served to all attendees. This exclusive event is tailored for GPs, GPPs, and ANPs within the Antrim Ballymena GP Federation. Eligibility criteria will be circulated separately. Each participant will receive a Hot Topics course book on the day. The agenda for the event can also be found in the attached flyer.

Attendance at previous Hot Topics events has been free for members, however we have had to make a small adjustment this year. The Federation covers all costs including the course fee, catering, and venue expenses. We are constrained by financial considerations and as a result, the ticket price to attend the course is set at £40 per person, with the Federation subsidising over £160 of the ticket cost on your behalf.

This event is strictly ticket only - to secure your spot and buy tickets for this event, please book your place before the closing date of 19th April.

Tickets are non refundable
