Change to programme

Unfortunately Dr McAllister is unable to speak to the WSPG on Wednesday 28 November 2012. However, we are lucky in that Emma Mair, who is a Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist with the Glasgow Pain Management Service, has volunteered to speak on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Graded Motor Imagery on that evening.
