UK Pleural Diseases Course

This was last held on 21 & 22 September 2017 at Belton Woods, Grantham. It is planned that the course will run on a 2 yearly cycle.


This course was very well received with excellent feedback.  This follows our successful first course in March 2015.

Pleural disease is common and frequently difficult to manage well.  This course is aimed at practising clinicians: both trainees and consultants.

The international faculty brought together the most recent research with the experience of practising clinicians from around the world to bear on this rapidly evolving area of respiratory medicine. It explored  common problems encountered in treating pleural disease.

The sessions were designed to be interactive and maximised the opportunity for group discussion informed by the latest research and ideas about pleural disease.

The course programme discussed pleural disease from basic diagnostic methods to controversies in management of infection, malignancy and pneumothorax.

This was a residential 2 day course. Accommodation and dinner were be provided on Wednesday and Thursday night as part of the course fee.  It’s strongly encouraged that all delegates come for both days to enhance the experience for all on the course, although tickets for individual days were available.

RCP CPD accreditation for 12 category 1 credits was approved by the Royal College of Physicians of London.

Costs were £595 and £500 (non-residential) for both days.
