Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th June will be the dates of the second Summer Advanced Course. In 2016 more than 50 came to Hathersage and enjoyed a fantastic series of talks, discussions and films over three days. Blessed by fantastic weather, there will be more opportunities to swim, run, cycle and climb in the Peaks! On the 11th we’ll be focusing upon the needs of youngsters in the mountain environment, whilst the 12th will be devoted to the prevention and treatment of limb injuries. If this wasn’t enough we also have a series of evening events organized too. We’ll kick off with a Pizza and Pasta Fundraiser for Nepali charity IPPG, followed by a “Curry Night” and talk from Bob Comlay who’ll share his adventures with the great explorer HW Tilman. Finally we’ll close the course at the David Mellor Design Museum where our guest speaker will be the neurologist and expedition doctor Charlie Clarke. 17.5 hours of CPD have been confirmed by the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) for the three days. See attached forms for booking info.
