FE CornishTweets were flying round the country last week from the Oxford MWF meeting, Aspects of Pain, reporting on "a room full of kickass women". It was certainly a buzzing meeting with over 100 people attending. You can read Helen MacMullen's excellent report on the website. The Oxford team, with Kate Chalmers at the helm, did a fantastic job and we are all very grateful to everyone involved. Highlights included Peggy Frith on Athena SWAN awards, Jane Moore on Chronic Pelvic Pain, Raymond Tallis on Assisted Dying, Mike Sharpe on Chronic Fatigue as well as our prize winning student essay writer and student abstract presenters.

Junior Doctors Networking in the coffee breakIt was with much anticipation that I attended the MWF Spring 2013 conference, which this year took place in the historical city of Oxford.

The event kicked off on the Thursday evening with a, somewhat wet, but much enjoyed guided tour of the famous landmarks of Oxford's city centre, where members were treated to glimpses inside the beautiful colleges and entertained with interesting facts about Tolkien, Lewis Caroll and much more. This was followed by a delicious dinner at a city centre restaurant.
