The fourth BRITSpA Annual Scientific meeting took place on 12th and 13th September 2018 in Birmingham.  The  scientific programme for this meeting was developed independently by this year's meeting chairmen Raj Sengupta and Karl Gaffney and the Executive Committee of BRITSpA. CPD accreditation was awarded to all delegates and speakers. Dr Tom Williams from the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust has written an insightful summary of this year's meeting's sessions.
