NIHR Ultrasound: delivering the diagnostics strategy of the future

Edgbaston Park Hotel & Conference Centre, 53 Edgbaston Park Road, Birmingham, B15 2RS

Access to rapid diagnostic testing to support acute care decisions is very limited in the community. This one day workshop, funded by the NIHR and hosted at the University of Birmingham, will explore the potential for GPs to begin using point of care ultrasound and echo in their day to day practice - both in and out of hours. There will be presentations from community and hospital based clinicians on how they use point of care ultrasound, researchers who are developing software to support interpretation of scan images and a vision for community based imaging from the National Clinical Director for Diagnostics for NHS England. There will be opportunities to try out different point of care ultrasound systems, network with peers and lunch will be provided.
