Very good, apart from topic on skin cancer has not been presented appropriately within the timescale.

.
.

While appreciating that the conference was aimed at a wide audience including different modalities thetalks were mostly directed at specialists with small input for primary care. All the speakers wereexcellent and knowledgeable. Heartening to see so many of the BIDA members as such specialists.

.
.

Excellent is the only word I can say.

.
.

Very good.

.
.

It was a very informative meeting. It has certainly helped me.

.
.

The day was too long.

.
.

Please consider involving primary care in your development of future programmes. Relevance inprimary care.

.
.

Worth attending on a Saturday! Please consider: More time allotted to speaker and fewer lectures.

.
.

Microphone needs to be better located- most speakers were talking to the wall

.
.

Good topics of discussion but was not much GP/primary care related. Can we have some more topicspurely related to General Practice. I realised that the crowd was mixed. Very good lecture from Dr Arya.

.
.

It is preferable to have less number of speakers with increased speaking time

.
.

Excellently run and organised. Food superb. Wonderful lecture by Dr Arya and F1 student (Tong).Personally I would have preferred a bit more direct relevance for GP’s but I understand manyspecialties in the crowd.

.
.

Excellent event. Found it quite useful.

.
.

Worth attending the all day seminar, looking forward to next years.

.
.

Too many topics – little time for speakers. Should have been less topics, more common concerns andlonger time. Most of presentations were not primary care orientated.

.
.

A very well organised, informative and diverse conference with very good refreshments. Fullyenjoyable and recommended.

.
.

There were too many topics in very short time.

.
.

Organisation- very good. Presentations- excellent. Relevance- relevant for CPD/CME clinicalknowledge useful for medical practice.

.
.

Overall very good.

.
.

Well presented and easy to understand for GP’s.

.
.

Update on skin cancer – big topic speaker should have organised his talk is within specified time.

.
.

Gastroenterology related topics were specifically relevant on my practice as a Gastroenterologist.

.
.

All topics were well prepared and presented.

.
.

Number of speakers should certainly have been reduced and speakers given more time. Lunch shouldhave been much lighter.

.
.

Organisation efficient, presentations are very good – too advanced for GP’s.

.
.

Saturday meetings are very easy, handy to attend. I think you should have at least two meetings a yearwith various topics.

Excellent communication, relevant topics.

.
.

Very well organised and run during the day. Not very well represented was hospital physicians andjunior Doctors. Maybe a conference for juniors is a good idea.

.
.

The topics were too broad for the time given to each speaker. A conference only about a few tumoursites only formed one aspect of it, screening would be better in my opinion.

.
.

I felt a few of the first topics were the same as the last five.

.
.

Fantastic.

.
.

An excellent meeting with relevant topics and speakers.

.
.

Would suggest handouts of surgeons and physicians lectures. Too much info to write down and digest.Excellent meeting, very impressed with all the speakers and their excellent work.

.
.

Very good indeed.

.
.

Relevance – little. In primary care we want to improve on early diagnosis rather than address inmanagement in secondary care. Too much distraction with noises from outside the lecture theatre.

.
.

Speakers must het at least forty minutes for presentations and ten minutes (three questions) forquestions and answers. I felt the speakers were pushed for time.

.
.

Very well organised. All presentations short and concise. Relevant to my practice.

.
.

I think you have done very well looking at time constrain.

.
.

Well organised day. Clear concise presentations. Queue for lunch a bit long, perhaps two stations forfood.

Well organised event. Some speakers were rushed for time so perhaps increase slots to thirty minutes.

.

End of life care/informed decent topics could have been discussed. Excellent knowledgeablespeakers.

.
.

FY2 still deciding which speciality to go in to, previous rotation in oncology.

.
.

I am currently a CMT1 who is considering becoming an oncology SPR. Very well presented. I liked thefact that talks were twenty minutes each as you keep focused. Most of the specialities have beencovered. Thank you for organising the conference free of charge. More food choice as was too spicy forme.

.
.

Very informative, well presented and organised. Has kindled my interest in oncology.

.
.

Organisation very good. Presentations good. As a practicing physiciansuspecting CA and early referral for investigation and treatment.

.
.

Good selection of topics but very surgically orientated. Wish there was more medical ones and newupdates e.g. trials.

.
.

Well organised, generally ran to time.

.
.

Organisation and presentations very good. My personal comment: The number of speakers should beless. The speakers should be given more time to elaborate on the topic and their speciality.

.
.

We could save time by organising two food stations. Well organised most of the topics are relevant tomy General Practice.

.
.

Perhaps two separate eating table could have been made available to make it easy.
