15th - 16th November 2021
9am - 4pm

Due to the COVID pandemic and uncertainty about whether it would be possible to meet in person, this year’s exciting Preterm 2021 conference will be entirely online.  We hope this provides an opportunity for many more delegates to attend, and also make it easier for those outside the UK to join us.


Delegates can register for only £25 for both days (students and delegates from low and middle income countries can register for only £1).

We look forward to welcoming you.
