The Chemistry Division of UK NEQAS, which includes the centres based in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Guildford are pleased to announce that we are holding a series of Roadshows across the UK from early next year.

Each Roadshow will be the same, so you only have to come to one! We are crossing the country, so there will be a venue close to you. If the date of your local one doesn’t suit, you are welcome to attend any of the others. We are going for city centre venues, so travelling by train shouldn’t be a problem.

We will be explaining the mechanics of the Schemes, including how the statistics are calculated and how to interpret your reports to assist you in troubleshooting.
We will showcase some of the added value extras that the Schemes provide; we are not just a numbers-only service.
We want to give you the chance to ask questions from us on any topic, but perhaps with particular emphasis on how we can assist you in your day job and how to help you with the demands of ISO15189.

The Cube, Canalside Birmingham. Next to the Mailbox.

Save the date – Friday 1st March 2019. We will be funding this from our education budget, so the Roadshow will be free. All you have to do is arrange for study leave and meet your own expenses.

Please feel free to download the flyer or use our registration form to register your interest.

The individual speakers may be different at each Roadshow but the presentations themselves will be consistent. The speakers will include Finlay MacKenzie, Alan Reid, Cathie Sturgeon, Rachel Marrington, Jane French, Gwen Wark, Martin Roch and other members from across the centres.
