UKISCRS sends wishes for a happy, and safe, New Year to you all
Dear friends and colleagues,
Please see above the new video from our President, Prof. Sathish Srinivasan, where you will hear our news first-hand!
We are very excited to announce that UKISCRS are planning an 'in-person' Cornea & Cataract day event on Monday 12th July; in line with the 'Safer Events Accreditation' and the 'All Secure Standards'. Our chosen venue, the Birmingham Park Regis Hotel, can accommodate us (limited numbers) for this exciting 1-day programme. We have an excellent programme and a fantastic industry exhibition confirmed with the following companies supporting us: Altacor Pharmaceuticals, Bausch+Lomb, BVI Medical, Daybreak, Farmigea Ophthalmics, Glaukos, Kestrel Ophthalmics, Lenstec, Staar Surgical, Surgitrac, Thea Pharmaceutical & VisuFarma plus the OSI magazine.
Prior to this in-person planned meeting we have a topical International faculty webinar on Thursday 1st April 'Cataract surgery, premium IOLs and Ocular co-morbidities' chaired by Laura Crawley & Philip Bloom. The faculty include Allon Barsam, Graham Duguid & Canada's Ike Ahmed.
In May to mark the rescheduled C&C day we have a expert video cases session. And in June we will have selected 4 of the best videos submitted by our members (with a cash prize) as an interactive webinar chaired by Prof Srinivasan. Please look at our events page for all the information you need.
We do hope we are coming to the end of what has been an unexpected and challenging 12-months. We also hope you have all remained safe and well.
One thing we know is that our council, our delegates and our industry cannot wait to see you. The planned annual Congress in November (at the Jury's Inn Hinckley Island Hotel) should be a huge celebration - and it is one we very much hope to see you at.
Please keep in touch and keep safe.
