Society for Acute Medicine Autumn Meeting
The autumn meeting of the Society for Acute Medicine took us to the spectacular city of Edinburgh. More than 150 delegates attended this, the tenth meeting of the Society, by far the largest attendance to-date, and a clear ref lection of the rapid expansion of this new sub-specialty. We were hosted by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, in their grand building on Queen Street, and were made to feel welcome by all the staff there. A special mention must go to the immaculately turned-out doorman who helped me find my way from the Royal College to my accommodation at a nearby hotel.
