Read what attendees thought of the three day event.
'Fantastic programme already underway - it's going to be exhausting - in a good way!'
'After a brain, soul and funny bone stretching day yesterday, looking forward to today's adventures at #PCC2016'
'First, the choice of plenary speakers was truly fantastic. They made the congress for me. Secondly, the clinical sessions were superb. The skill of the presenters were key to this. I was able to engage fully with the sessions and grasp the essence of what virtually everyone was trying to convey. This congress proved to me that such a forum can be captivating as well as educational, which is really what events of this kind should be about. Because the sessions did not try to be too "niche" I was able to come out of the event recharged and invigorated. Thirdly, I felt that I was able to get from this congress that which I would not easily be able to access elsewhere. Accordingly it follows that it worth the investment of my time and money'
'It was a pleasure to attend this year's PCC and I am grateful to the organising committee. They were able to confirm that which I had long believed, namely, that a PCC "for everyone" is not only realistic, but achievable.'
'I can honestly say I wasn't bored at any point...Networking opportunities were excellent. The chairing of Derek Willis was excellent, keeping the mood light and positive. Ditto the contributions of all office bearers and helpers...'
'A thoroughly brilliant congress with an excellent breadth of speakers from within and out-with our specialty. Very high quality of talks that gave a lot of food for thought. A strong sense of fun, friendliness and humility throughout, inspired by Derek at the helm. You can't overestimate the impact of this..it spilled into the networking sessions and coffee breaks/ dinner, but was also present in the educational sessions themselves. It made the subject matter (however serious) feel accessible and engaging. I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend the three days of the congress'
'The plenaries were really interesting and dealt with "grey" topics which left lots of room for thought'
'I was not sure if I was going to attend the dinner despite having bought a ticket. It turned out to be a good decision on my part. The dinner was outstanding and completely exceeded my expectations. Well done.'
