24 July 2015 (Friday) - Money I Haven't Got

I had an email from the BBTS today.

This month's Bloodspots brings you an events special. With three exclusive scientific meetings taking place through October and November, we are sure that every one of our members will find something of interest.  We also invite abstract submissions for two meetings, details of which can be found below.

Red Cell Special Interest Group
30th October 2015 | £45.00
NHSBT Filton will pay host to this year's Red Cell SIG.  Topics covered include Erythropoiesis - regulation and cell lines, Malaria - adhesion and invasion, Red Cells - properties in stress and disease.  

The Uncertainty of it All
10th November | BBTS members £90 / non-members £95
UK NEQAS (BTLP) & BBTS Blood Bank Technology Special Interest Group.  Topics include 'Motivating Staff' and 'Anti-D, Anti-G and All That'.

Spotlight on Platelets
11th November | BBTS members £90 / non-members £95
Throwing light on a variety of specific questions about the use of platelet transfusion in medical & surgical practice, particularly in areas of controversy or little evidence.

They all look very interesting but these meetings aren’t cheap, and they aren’t especially local either. By the time I’d got there I’d be rather out of pocket.

I wonder if they couldn’t do this sort of thing as a podcast?
