The BMC in partnership with the British Mountain Medical Society has been running the weekend part of the festival (6th and 7th June) for 5 years. The weekend is a practical course run by mountain medical and pre-hospital professionals. It's primary aim is to teach non-medical people important skills to prevent, recognise and manage illness and injury in the mountains. This year we are lucky enough to be joined by top climber (and Podiatrist) Gary Gibson who will be sharing his podiatry knowledge in workshops and giving the Saturday evening talk based around his excellent book 'Blood sweat and Smears'.
This event is approved for CPD by British Mountain Guides.
