Workshop

4th NANSIG / SBNS Introduction to Neurosurgical Skills Workshop 2019

Endorsed by the Society of British Neurological Surgeons, the Neurology and Neurosurgery Interest Group successfully ran our fourth introductory neurosurgical skills course on Tuesday 18th June 2019 at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. The consumable equipment used on the course cost in excess of £1,000 per individual, but thanks to our generous sponsors we ran the course for a fee of £250. For pictures of this years workshop please click on this link.

If you who missed out on the chance to attend our June 2019 workshop, watch this space as we will endeavour to run a further workshop later on in the year – details to follow via our newsletter and social media.


The 2017 edition of our workshop was immensely successful and a report detailing it is published in the British Journal of Neurosurgery. (1) All delegates that participated in our workshop felt more confident about attending and assisting in the theatre following the workshop:
