All neuroscience SpRs and research registrars are invited and encouraged to attend the annual NENA meeting

  1. There is no charge - NENA subs are only paid by Consultant members

  2. There is a NENA grant which pays for overnight accommodation and all meals at the Majestic Hotel for trainees who present their work and a partner. Book a room at the Majestic and ask for the NENA conference rate. Ask for a receipt when you check out and pay. Send the receipt to the NENA treasurer, Dr Fayyaz Ahmed Consultant Neurologist, Hull Royal Infirmary, Anlaby Road, Hull HU3 2JZ, who will send you a refund.

  5. The Crawford prize is worth £250 and is given for the best clinical research presentation.
