Waking up to Acute Heart Failure was the first collaboration between the University of Exeter Medical School, the RD&E Foundation Trust and the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital to deliver state-of-the-art education in the peninsula - and it was a huge success! We were extremely fortunate to be supported by both nationally and internationally renowned speakers who delivered incredibly engaging talks. The organisation of the event was also extremely efficient and very well led by Cecilia Manosa-Nyblon and her team.

We have now reached the 50th anniversary of heart transplantation and it still remains the gold standard treatment for advanced heart failure. Newer therapies like ventricular assist devices now provide comparable 3 year survival to heart transplantation with massive improvements in symtoms and early referral of advanced heart failure patients remains crucial to allow patients access to these life-saving therapies. This is why Education Days like Waking up to Acute Heart Failure are so valuable. It enabled us to share the latest advances in acute heart failure diagnosis and treatment and provided a great platform for discussion.

Excellent, well thought out Allergy conference for primary care health professionals. Giving great opportunities to ask questions relevant to day to day practice within breakout sessions that were subject specific… Thank you Exeter University for such a wonderful venue location and to Dr's Ludman & Leeman for organising such a great event.

Just a quick note to say thank you for a brilliant Exeter EBMA conference on Friday and Saturday. It was superb in terms of content, organization and, most of all, spirit. In many ways, medical education is ahead of the general education curve because the stakes are so high, and to be among those striving for even better provision based on the latest thinking, whether medical, technological or pedagogical, is exhilarating. My organisation and indeed I personally would be delighted to be involved in any future ventures.
