UKISCRS wish you all good health to you and your loved ones.

You will have seen over the past few months how busy UKISCRS have been to ensure there is a continued education programme during COVID-19. We have collaborated, and presented webinars, with the Royal College of Ophthalmology to ensure that current guidelines are in place for the restarting of ophthalmic services. We have discussed cataract surgery, the topic of ISBCS and now the commencement of Laser Refractive Surgery. Please visit the site daily for further updates.

Our first webinar programme 'A conversation with...' has been resounding success and we continue this a series of more clinical anterior segment session. We have three planned webinars in July, a break for August, and then start again on Thursday 3rd September. We thank all of our panelists and chairs who have taken the time to plan for, and present in, these educational events.

Our annual meeting, whilst reduced to a 1-day event is still planned to be held at the Birmingham Park Regis Hotel on Saturday 14th November. This event will be operated in line with the White Paper issued and accredited by 'Safer Events'

We would like to state that our members and followers have been incredibly supportive during this unexpected time and we thank you for your continued interest in our Society. We would like also to thank our industry colleagues who have helped us to provide the webinar education and assisted in supporting the UKISCRS website.

Behind the scenes we have been drawing up the application process to become a CIO 'Charity Incorporated Organisation' which is very exciting for us. We also have recently closed the nomination period for three new members. The new members will take position on Saturday 14th November.

Education is key to UKISCRS and we are proud to be an active and key provider of Ophthalmic engagement. Remember when you are a member of UKISCRS you are also a member of ESCRS who run educational grants, fellowships and awards. The ACCEA have announced that the national Clinical Excellence Awards have been completely postponed until 2021. We will keep you updated on new information for the awards.

If you would like any further information on joining UKISCRS as a member, the Young Ophthalmologist Programme, becoming a council member or if you have a general Ophthalmic question you think we might be able to help with; do not hesitate to contact us.

In the meantime, keep safe & well.
Best wishes,
