Your use of this website at www.belford-hospital-150.co.uk (“this website”) is governed by these terms and conditions of use. You may print and keep a copy of these terms and conditions of use.

The “Belford 150 Committee” exists solely to organise a commemorative conference in October 2015, education & training material and other resources of relevance to the various healthcare professions. You will therefore see the name “Belford 150” or “Belford Committee”  or various combinations of two or more of “Belford”, “150” and “Committee” in these terms and conditions, referring to the organising committee involved with this particular commemorative conference in October 2015.

The Belford 150 Committee reserves the right to change the terms and conditions at its discretion by changing them on this webpage of this website.

These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Scottish law. Each party irrevocably agrees to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland over any claim or matter arising under or in connection with these terms and conditions.


    1. Privacy Policy, Data Protection & Communications
      1. The Belford 150 Committee does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. Your details will be added to a specific conference database in order to process your booking, to assist with our course planning and so that you can be kept up to date with relevant details of our services.
      2. We ask for your telephone number so we can phone you if you haven’t turned up on the first day of the course. We ask for your address so we can process your payment and / or send you a cheque refund in the unlikely event we have to cancel any part of the conference and if we cannot process the refund any other way. We ask students for university details in case we need to verify their status (however, we are asking delegates to choose the appropriate conference fee in good faith, and we do not expect to have to do check-up). Finally, we ask for your email address as this will be our main method of contacting you, and sending booking confirmations etc.
      3. Under the UK Data Protection Act, you are entitled to view any data we hold about you, upon payment of the appropriate fee (subject to a maximum of £50). You are entitled to correct any errors in the data. The Belford 150 Committee is obliged by law (Credit Regulations Act) to hold all data for a minimum of 6 years.
      4. If you do not wish to receive any further information from us, please contact us or via surface mail:
