  • DOCTORSUPDATES have been providing ‘education in a perfect location’ for nearly 25 years. The meetings take place in the Alps in winter and in the Algarve in autumn. The first Anaesthesia Update was held in 1989 in the beautiful French Alpine resort of La Clusaz with less than 50 delegates and very little snow. The winter meeting was subsequently moved higher in the Alps, first to Belle Plagne and then in 2008 to Val d’Isere, one of the world’s premier ski resorts. We now regularly welcome more than 400 doctors from UK and other countries to its superb purpose built conference centre.

    The increased capacity of the conference centre has enabled us to accommodate other medical specialties,  making this the first truly multidisciplinary meeting of its kind.  As well as Anaesthetics we now welcome Radiology, Trauma & Orthopaedics, Plastic Surgery, General Practice and Dermatology for an educational week. There are both specialty specific academic programmes and also many joint academic sessions. There is no doubt that the introduction of several different specialties side by side in a congenial location has provided a unique opportunity for exchange of ideas, problem solving and networking.

    The autumn Anaesthesia Forum was launched in 1998. The meeting took place in Marbella, Spain and apart from a stimulating scientific programme there was plenty of time for warm weather sporting activities. The event was declared a great success by the participants. The current venue of this annual event is Da Balaia, a Club Med resort in the Algarve. It seems that the combination of academia with golf/tennis/swimming or merely pool or seaside relaxation is also a winning formula.

    Doctorsupdates are extremely proud of their academic reputation, and can assure you of a relaxed, healthy and informative week, whether in winter or autumn, of education in a perfect location.
