UKISCRS President Elect
UKISCRS extend their sincere wishes for your safety during this time.Firstly; UKISCRS are proud to announce that we have been granted 'Charity Incorporate Organisation (CIO)' status from the Charity Commission - registered charity number: 1191256. This has been 18-months of work and we are delighted to make this announcement.
Secondly; and with a heavy heart, we announce the cancellation of our meeting on 14th November in Birmingham. This is due to localised lockdowns and new rules on meetings and events. If we are permitted to educationally event by November - it will most likely be with a maximum of 30 people on site. As a Society we have debated waiting a little longer prior to making a decision, however, our true and main priority is to keep everyone safe - and with the second COVID-19 waive hitting - we do not feel we can safely invite you all to our meeting.
To mark the meeting, and in continuation of the UKISCRS webinars, we will be airing a very special President's Plenary Webinar on the 14th November to which we invite you to join us (faculty to be announced). We will introduce our newest council members to you: Laura Crawley, Rizwana Khan, Paul Ursell and Mario Saldanha. We will also make the formal announcement of our Charity Status along with the end of the webinar seeing Prof. Philip Bloom hand over the Presidency to Prof. Sathish Srinivasan. It will be an uplifting & educational webinar that is not to be missed.
Engagement is key to UKISCRS and we are proud to be an active and key provider of Ophthalmic education. It is our aim to continue to grow our very strong Young Ophthalmologists Programme further and we will be offering a dry lab experience in Spring 2021 in Birmingham. This will be followed by other dry lab and mentor programmes throughout the year where we share research, offer cash prizes for videos and encourage our trainees to really become a part of their national Society.
UKISCRS membership, for all grades and professions allied to ophthalmology, brings you two annual meetings with a National and International network. Engagement, interaction and innovation are part of UKISCRS' beating heart. If you are not a member* - or would like to find out more, just get in touch!
*Remember when you are a member of UKISCRS you are also a member of ESCRS who run educational grants, fellowships and awards. We will keep you updated on new information on education, grants and prizes in the coming months.
In the meantime, please keep safe and we will see you soon.
