On the mornings of 29th and 30th April 2021 – when we should have been in Bournemouth for the 32nd Annual Clinical Negligence Conference (ACNC) – we will bring some of the excellent speakers who were due to present at the conference directly to your computer by hosting the second online ‘(Not the) ACNC’. The event will have an obstetrics theme and there will be a live Q&A with the speakers at the end of both mornings. Online booking is now open and we very much hope that you will join us on the 29th and 30th April.
