HIV and the Brain – workshop – September 2010
Good as always.
Very interesting and relevant to daily clinic issues/people.
Thanks for another great day.
First time to attend – very interesting and useful.
Can you try to get Royal College accreditation for these meetings?
Very interesting and well put together
National Meeting – Manchester – April 2010
Didn’t find break out sessions useful – still didactic teaching but in worse environment – couldn’t hear properly.
Research methods workshops were the highlight of the day – very informative!
Thanks – very good.
Very interesting and helpful.
Interactive session was very beneficial but perhaps more useful for those earlier in their training.
Thanks for all your hard work.
In interactive session it was difficult to concentrate with the noise from other groups or from catering staff. May have been better doing it in lecture form.
For interactive sessions, space groups further apart – noisy in main room.
Well organised, very useful meeting. Very good for networking.
There was some overlap in the group work but overall was very useful.
The pm sessions were good but did not generate that much discussion – could have been done in lecture form.
Split into separate rooms for small group work (x2)
Good meeting as usual.
TB – workshop – November 2009
The best yet!
Very informative, enjoyable, well organised day. It was my first time at the Club and it was fantastic – thank you.
Clinical based session always appreciated.
Very good, relevant meeting.
Excellent meeting – thoroughly enjoyed it.
Good venue – central is always good.
Very useful – cases were a good idea
Good update overall, good to consolidate the knowns and be taught on the unknowns. Useful to hear up-to-date data from conference.
Very good and useful programme. Found update on IGRAs and latest TB most useful.
Very good day – thank you.
Very good meeting.
Sex and HIV – workshop – September 2009
Too long a tea break in the afternoon.
Thank you for organising.
Thought there should have been something on reproduction options.
Needed slightly better allocation of time, eg 1 hour for Prof Mabey’s talk, 30 mins for neurosyphilis talk and 1 hour for Prof Hart’s talk.
Good to talk about HIV in a broader context without getting preoccupied with HIV in patient care (yawn).
Appreciate the meeting being held on a Monday (or Friday) as this makes travel easier for those coming from a distance. Good content, food and organisation – thanks.
Cases are more useful in daily practice – think we are all aware of general principles.
Overall, very good day – thank you.
Really useful meeting – thank you.
National meeting – Liverpool – March 2009
Overall, very good.

How to get funding for research
Very good meeting overall
