NAMDET held their 6th annual conference at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre on Thursday 2nd November 2017. This year’s theme was around improving safety through competency approach and was attended by over 160 delegates from all across Great Britain and was aimed at medical device & clinical skills trainers, engineers , MDSOs, risk managers and training coordinators.

Feedback from our delegates to date is amazing and our exhibitors also enjoyed a great event. Our speakers have very kindly supplied copies of their presentations but we ask that if you wish to use any of the content you reference them in every instance.
