Staff and students from the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare will gather at the University of West London’s St. Mary’s Road campus on 30 May 2018, for a one-day conference to celebrate some of their most impressive achievements.

During the event, which will take place between 9.30am and 4.30pm in Weston Hall, staff and students will have the chance to present their work. Companies, in the medical field, have been invited to exhibit in an adjoining hall throughout the day.

Janet Deacon, Lecturer in Simulation and Interim Head of Simulated Learning at UWL, said:

We want to showcase the knowledge, skills, achievements and innovations that students and staff within the College have brought to nursing, midwifery and healthcare. Our aim is to encourage and enthuse our students to make a difference.
