The Lancashire & Cheshire Branch covers the northwest of England and includes Cumbria and part of North Wales. We hold our Branch meetings at Warrington General Hospital (Lovely Lane, Warrington, Cheshire, WA5 1QG. T: 01925 635911) in Thewall House (the postgraduate or education centre) which is on your right as you enter the hospital. Currently car parking costs £3 for up to 5 hours.
These meetings are usually on the first Sunday of the month and start at 10am with an hour of peer supervision, led by a senior member of the Branch, when members are encouraged to bring current cases for discussion by the group. This is followed by a talk given by a Branch member or an outside speaker and finishes around 12.30pm. Branch meetings count as CPD for 2.5 hours. We also run regular Foundation training and occasional one day workshops on selected topics.
