The Committee wish everyone a Happy and Healthy 2017. For our first meeting of the year we look forward to a talk about DIABETES and ARTERIES from Mr Robert Hicks, on TUESDAY, JANUARY 24th. This will be the first talk Mr Hicks, Consultant Vascular Surgeon at Northampton General Hospital, has given to our group and we are extremely fortunate that he is prepared to spare us his precious free time. I am sure this will be a very interesting evening and we look forward to seeing you there – 7.30pm in the Cripps Postgraduate Medical Centre at Northampton General Hospital.
