About the event


For twenty years AvMA’s Annual Clinical Negligence Conference (ACNC) has brought the clinical negligence community together under one roof to learn and discuss the latest developments, policies and strategies. It is established as the essential annual forum for those involved in clinical negligence and medical law, attracting leading figures from the medico-legal world, over 450 delegates and a variety of exhibitors. The ACNC will be celebrating its 21st birthday in Bournemouth on 19-20 June 2009 and, as ever, it will be an event not to be missed.

The first day of the conference will focus on Medico-Legal Issues Arising from Birth and Reproduction, and there will also be the usual high standard of plenary presentations and focused breakout sessions that you would expect from this event, ensuring that you stay up to date with all the key issues and providing 10 hours CPD (SRA, Bar Council and APIL). Registration fees have remained at the same rate as 2008. With the reduction in VAT, the total price has actually decreased. We are also offering greater discounts when you book three or more places.

The ACNC also provides excellent networking opportunities. On the day before the start of the conference, we will be holding the fifth AvMA Annual Charity Golf Day (link to Golf Day flyer) at the beautiful Isle of Purbeck Golf Club in Dorset. The Welcome Reception and Buffet will take place later that evening and the Mid-Conference Dinner will be held on the Friday evening.

Accept no imitations, and remember - as well as providing you with a top quality, thought provoking, learning and networking experience, the success of the conference helps AvMA to maintain its position as an essential force in promoting justice.
