Annual Review 2020/21

This year the STPN Annual Review will take a slightly different format. As we cannot meet up in person, we will run a series of events online over the course of April and May. Each session will cover a different topic and most will include an update on our work, case presentations and discussion and education. Confirmed dates, times and topics are:
