As a proud Mancunian, I’m delighted to invite you to Manchester for Focus 2018. We hope that as many of you as possible will join us for the ACB’s National Meeting, where we will Focus on Value. The conference will be held in the modern and environmentally-friendly Brooks Building, part of Manchester Metropolitan University, from 6-8 June, 2018.

Manchester is the original modern city. What Athens was to Ancient Greece and Florence was to the Italian Renaissance, Manchester was to the modern scientific and industrial age. It remains a powerhouse of science and the arts, sport and music, and is home to the University of Manchester, the second-largest university in the UK and the largest single-site university, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Salford.

Following the hugely successful Focus in Leeds last year, we have kept to the two-day format for the meeting, and Chris Chaloner and the Scientific Programme Committee have put together a dazzling programme with something for everyone, encompassing current research, horizon-scanning, clinical skills enhancement and the realities of delivering value-added services to today’s health care providers.

Focus 2018 will be packed with value – in the lectures, in the networking with colleagues and commercial partners and in the opportunities to broaden your horizons scientifically, socially and culturally. We’ve worked hard to make this a successful meeting on every level. We’d love to welcome you as a partner in that success.

Mike Hallworth

Chair, Focus 2018 Organising Committee
