This important and timely conference, chaired by our Chief Executive, Paul Jenkins, will support delegates to better understand and meet the needs of people with medically unexplained symptoms/somatic symptom disorder. The summit follows on from a similar popular event held in London at the end of 2016, and will provide a networking and learning forum for leaders and practitioners in the field of somatic symptom disorder.
