BBTS has a tradition of informal networking, and we are therefore inviting all
delegates to share dinner on 14th May. Some of you may have already opted
for the accommodation and dinner package, however you can still attend the dinner independently.
A well known figure in Transfusion, Dr Dafydd Thomas, will be sharing his thoughts - if he can be heard
over the chatter! This provides a great opportunity to use these 2 days as a short,
joint complementary conference to inform working practice in your Hospital.
