DSMIG generally organises a full day meeting each year in London , in the autumn and a workshop at the RCPCH conference in the spring. A typical meeting begins with a members only session which includes DSMIG business, and clinical case discussions. The remainder of the day is open to non- members and includes expert speakers on specialist topics and presentations on planned or completed research, service provision, development, and audit. Meetings are informal and interactive and are accredited for CPD.  From time to time DSMIG organises larger meetings , in conjunction with other organisations.

The RCPCH annual meeting which was due to be held 28-30 April 2020 has been postponed due to COVID -19.

The session that that DSMIG  was to run jointly with  the British Association for  Community Child Health and the British Paediatric Respiratory Society , focussing on respiratory issues in Down Syndrome will therefore not be going ahead on 29th April 2020.

We hope that this session will be rearranged as part of a  future RCPCH meeting.Please check back here or for future plans
