Message from the Chairman

EBOLA Session now included at FIS 2014 - see Programme

Not without foundation Yorkshire has been christened "God's Own County"!

The largest UK county geographically speaking, it has a tremendous heritage, not least in the areas of landscape, industry and commerce, and academia, and - for good and bad - has produced influential and fascinating people of the calibre and interest of the Brontë sisters, William Wilberforce, Captain James Cook, Gordon Banks, Harold Wilson, Guy Fawkes, Richard III and Jeremy Clarkson! (just to name a few).

In the world of medicine, Yorkshire boasts numerous high quality medical schools in Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, York and - if one looks back to an earlier time when there was a place that rejoiced in the glorious name of "North Riding" - Middlesbrough, today a major base for the regional Medical School for Newcastle University.  Beyond the narrower perspective of medicine, there is day to day much science of the highest calibre taking place, as well as active and growing teaching and training of nurses and allied healthcare professionals.

But FIS 2014 is taking place in none of the county's ½ million population-plus urban centres.

Harrogate is a town which by virtue of its formidable spa heritage is a worthy - and exceedingly beautiful - venue for this year's meeting.

FIS is the UK's largest infection-related conference, and one of the most important events of its type in the world, and we trust that brilliant, imaginative and eloquent people from throughout the wider worlds of medicine, healthcare and science will, in November, come from far and wide to Harrogate to contribute to what promises to be an outstanding event.

Why?  It is surely not too grandiose to say that without events such as this, and the research, imagination and lateral thinking that underpins them, there can be no progress - and without progress we won't get too far as a species!

So, please come and join us in the Land of the White Rose, as we all very much want to hear what you have to tell us!

Best wishes,

Steve
