UKISCRS sends wishes for a happy, and safe, New Year to you all
We hope you have managed to take a rest during the festive season and that your families and yourselves are well. We also hope that with the vaccine roll-out plan and new ways of managing R rates - via lockdowns and regular mass testing of school children - we will start to see a downturn in the virus in the not too distant future. Within ophthalmology, and all specialties, we have missed the usual annual calendar of meetings, congress and events and getting together professionally. It is our great hope that UKISCRS will see you in Liverpool at the Cornea & Cataract Day and the RCOphth meeting in May.
As the UKISCRS webinar programme was so successful in 2020 we continue with our online educational provision in the New Year. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 4th February and the details can be found on our events page. The webinar, chaired by Paul Ursell, ‘An IOL formula Shoot Out’ features International thought-leaders debating their own techniques. Register now to secure your place. We will then continue with our webinars on the first Thursday of every month.
As it is the New Year - for many of our members it is membership renewal time. UKISCRS membership gives you free ESCRS membership, access to iLearn, subscription to the JCRS & EyeNews and a platform to connect to your peers and colleagues (digitally and in-person). We have a strong Young Ophthalmologist membership and a robust Allied Professions group within our members. UKISCRS is an international network and it is our aim to engage, support, share research, interact and educate. With our Key Opinion Leaders and Council we provide 2 annual meetings and an annual webinar programme. Consultant membership is just £125. Please do re subscribe - or if you are not a member - do join us! It is easy to join online or you can call and arrange it over the phone.
If you have any questions or would like any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
In the meantime, be healthy and happy.
