STARS Patient Information

Do you have syncope, RAS or PoTS or know someone who does? Is it affecting your life? Would you like to learn more about your condition and how to live with it?

If you have answered YES to any or all of these questions, then join us and hundreds of other patients at STARS Patients Day 2019.

World renowned medical experts will be sharing their knowledge and talking about up to date research. Learn more about your condition, how you can better manage it and what treatment options are available to you. Patients Day gives you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your concerns with doctors and to meet other patients in a similar situation to you in a relaxed, comfortable environment. 

This year, we have added new topics and invited new speakers, so even if you have attended Patients Day in the past, you will still learn something new. 

If you or someone close to you experiences one or more of these conditions, we are confident you will experience a profound sense of relief when you attend this year's STARS Patients Day. 

Registration is £35 per person. Based on your feedback and to hold last year's price, tea and coffee will be available throughout the day for you to purchase. Complimentary lunch which will include water will be provided. Water will also be provided in all meeting rooms.
