- We can't wait to see you face to face!
11th and 12th October 2022After 2 years of virtual events, we were really pleased to welcome everyone back to a face to face PIER Conference 2022 at Hope Church in Winchester. We had an exciting, varied and stimulating programme of plenaries, workshops and presentations covering a wide variety of paediatric topics with something for all members of the paediatric MDT.
We look forward to seeing you all again for PIER 2023!
Hope Church is easy walking distance from Winchester Train Station.
There is a small public car park adjacent to the Church and a number of others including the North Walls, Tower Street and River Park all within a short walk.
The Chesil Street multi-story car park is slightly further, but still within a 10-12 minute walk. The cheapest option is the park and ride - details of which can be found here www.winchester.gov.uk/parking/parking-and-car-parks
For anyone cycling, bike racks are available close by.
