Friday 31 March to Sunday 2 April 2023
Cost: TBC

Save the date to join us in Oxford for our annual conference, based just outside the city at the Holiday Inn.  Full details and a booking form will be sent out to members with the Gazette, or will be available here in due course.

We would welcome short talks (20 minutes) from BSHP members, either directly linked to the conference theme of "Training, learning and education", or on any other aspect of pharmacy history. There is also the opportunity to submit a poster, either on the conference theme or other area of pharmacy history interest. You do not have to be an experienced speaker or seasoned researcher to take part. We are always very kene to support those new to pharmacy history.

Please contact Briony Hudson, Conference Organiser with a short outline of your proposed contribution, or with any queries, by Friday 18 November.
