6th Annual National CRPS Conference


Sunday, November 15, 2020 @ 09:30 16:30 GMT

Burning Nights CRPS Support announces our next annual national Complex Regional Pain Syndrome conference for 2020!

This year will be the 6th annual CRPS conference that the charity has run and this year it will be held on Sunday 15th November 2020.


Due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and the UK Government guidelines relating to large gatherings and conferences. Our 6th Annual National CRPS Conference is now being held ONLINE rather than at the DoubleTree Hilton, Chester.

The annual CRPS conference is aimed at patients living with complex regional pain syndrome, their families and friends to help give them support and to help their understanding of the condition, treatment options and more.

The annual conference is also available to health and legal professionals, however in the first instance it is for the support of CRPS patients, their families and friends.

This year our CRPS conference is being held on SUNDAY 15 NOVEMBER 2020 and will now be held ONLINE.
