It’s free to attend but participants must register in advance at before Friday 27 May 2022. The event is open to anyone who has an interest in improving awareness and understanding of CO exposure.

CORT chair Baroness Finlay will open proceedings, focusing on some of the key challenges and priorities for research. She says: “Since 2013, the Trust has invested almost £3 million in research projects. We are committed to investing a similar sum over the coming years. This conference will allow us to review the research funded so far and help us look to the future.

“The Trust is committed to improving awareness and understanding of CO poisoning, so that lives can be saved and to minimise the impact of CO poisoning, particularly for vulnerable groups.”
