Become a BAPM Special Interest or Affiliated Group

BAPM special interest or affiliated groups can start in two ways:

  1. If you are part of an existing neonatal specialist group that wishes to form closer ties with BAPM we can draw up an agreement to support each other.
  2. If you are an individual or group of individuals that wishes to launch a group on a certain topic area relevant to neonatal professionals then BAPM can help you do this.
