Donate to our new Bursary Fund

At the Annual General Meeting in Tenerife 2019 it was agreed that a new Fund should be set up to encourage new scientific investigators and trainee clinical and nursing staff to apply for bursary support to attend future conferences. Our first task is to build up a Specific Fund for this purpose to be known as the “SRHSB Bursary Fund”. If you are currently an Honorary Member, Senior Member, Ordinary member or supporter, please consider supporting the society in this way. Any donation, large or small will be most welcome.
