This year's Spring Conference takes place on Friday 28 April. With Monday 1 May being a Bank Holiday for many, it's a great excuse to spend a few days exploring our host city, Edinburgh.
We asked BAPM Executive Committee Representative for AHPs, Hilary Cruickshank who is also an Edinburgh local for some tips on making the most of a trip to the city.
What are you most looking forward to about the Spring Conference?
I'm most looking forward to networking with other AHP's and people passionate about neonatal care.
Why should AHPs consider attending?
The Spring Conference is aimed at an audience of paediatric and neonatal trainees at all levels of training, ANNPs and AHPs.
It's a great experience to see what work is being done in neonates and the posters really give you insight into good practice. It is also worth coming for the networking because you never know who you might meet!
For those staying in Edinburgh for the weekend what are you highlights not to miss?
For drinks, Cask have secret domes you can book for a group of people to watch the sunset over the castle and the cocktails are pretty awesome.
The Real Mary Kings Close is a tour underground in an original 17th century street and buildings. It is on the Royal Mile which is worth a walk along as the oldest part of the
George street is lovely to walk along with lots of bars and restaurants. Or, if you are feeling active, a walk up Arthur's Seat for views across the city.
There really is so much to do in this wonderful city and all within and easy walk of the conference venue.
