Scientific meetings and social events are held from October to June. The programme is varied and most meetings have an appeal for several specialities. The Institution is able to attract speakers of international renown. The programme includes endowed eponymous lectures and some joint meetings with specialist societies.


About one meeting each month is designed to be of sufficiently broad interest to attract non-medically qualified partners. Approval for CPD has been sought for certain meetings - details can be obtained from the Administrative Secretary.


If you wish to attend any of the LMI meetings please contact the Administrative Secretary , or telephone 0151 709 9125 extension 2, or click on the links below to book online. Please note places must be pre-booked. Please note the Admin Team can now take bookings and payments via the telephone.
