What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Two London Underground stations are near the hospital (Russell Square and Holborn), and several mainline train stations are within walking distance (Euston, Kings Cross, St Pancras, Waterloo and Charing Cross). There are also several bus stops close by. There are cycle racks on Queens square, just at the end of Great Ormond Street and the closest Santander Cycles docking station is on Guilford Street.
Street parking is very limited and can be expensive. There are also some car parks within walking distance to the hospital.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com - please note that it may take 48 hours to receive a reply due to clinical workload.
What is the refund policy?
Full refunds can be made if cancellations are made up to a week before the course. A small admin fee will still apply.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring your ticket confirmation email (electronic or paper), and a pen if you wish to make notes.
Can I eat during the lectures?
Food is not permitted inside the lecture theatre, but there will be a short break half way through where you can have a snack in the foyer.
