The Studio

Riverside West, Whitehall Road, Leeds, LS1 4AW

This event is a pilot event whereby we are segmenting the day into two sections.

Newer practitioners to aesthetic nursing (0-2 yrs experience) are invited to join us for the morning session 09.30-12.00 - this part of the agenda will be focused on introducing new members to the group and the BACN. This session will also include sponsored talks and presentations from industry professionals.

The lunch will see both new practitioners from the morning session and advanced practitioners arriving for the afternoon session come together for a networking lunch – this will be followed by a peer to peer review and round table discussion.

The afternoon session will be aimed at more advanced practitioners (2+ yrs) with focus on an injectable led demonstration from industry leaders and peer to peer learning – members are invited to present case studies of their work for group discussion.  

Basic Life Support training will be offered at the end of the meeting and is open to all members.

All members are invited to attend the full day if they wish - this event is being trialled so members can get the most out of these events without having to take a full day out of clinic if they are unable.

Feedback will be collected at the end of the day.
