BMC Mountain Medicine weekend 2019

Posted by Suzanne Jones on 15/11/2018

Join top doctors for a weekend of UK and high altitude first aid in Hathersage next June.

Now in its fourth year, the BMC Mountain Medicine weekend offers climbers, hill walkers, mountaineers and skiers the chance to receive first aid training from mountain medicine experts. 

Spend Saturday and/or Sunday (8-9 June) learning new skills through a series of one hour workshops, and join us for a beer, BBQ, and talk from BMC Patron and Himalayan legend Mick Fowler on Saturday evening .

READ THE REPORT FROM THE 2018 EVENT

Workshops

Led by our team of top instructors (with backgrounds ranging from mountain rescue to expedition work), the workshops require no prior medical knowledge and are open to anyone with an interest in the outdoors. 

Each day will include five one hour workshops (workshop list TBC), which will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. 

Workshops will run between 9.30am-5.30pm each day (in and around Hathersage, Peak District), with registration taking place between 8.30-9.30am on both Saturday and Sunday (next to the Outside car park). 

BBQ, beer and Mick Fowler

A BBQ and beer will be provided on Saturday evening (free to all attendees but donations welcome). This is your chance to chill out, ask any questions and discuss the day's activities.

After food, we'll be entertained by BMC Patron and Himalayan legend Mick Fowler.

Food, accommodation, travel and parking

Food and accommodation are not provided as part of the course. We'd like to encourage people to make use of local accommodation, pubs, etc.

There are several hotels, B&Bs, pubs and a YHA in Hathersage itself, and the North Lees campsite is around 2 miles from Hathersage centre.

Please use public transport or car share wherever possible, as parking in Hathersage is limited. We request that attendees do not park in the car park at Outside during the day, as this is reserved for shop patrons.

Tickets

The workshop list is stil being finalised, and booking will open in January. If you would like to receive more information when booking goes live please contact Suzanne Jones.

Profits and donations will go towards BMC Expedition funding.

 

Please note

Places on BMC workshops are not guaranteed until payment has been received. Places are also limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. 

A certificate of attendance will be offered to all attendees, but no formal qualification will be given. 

Cancellations within 14 days of the course starting will not be eligible for a refund.

Cancellations 15-28 days prior to the course starting will get a 50% refund.

Cancellations more than 28 days prior to the course starting get a full refund.

If the course is cancelled by the BMC a full refund will be offered.
