Updating in Upheaval
The annual scientific conference
online for the first time
21st to 22nd May, 2021
Welcome from the President:
This has been a challenging and turbulent year across our clinical, educational, professional and personal worlds. Our annual meeting in 2020 was cancelled without financial detriment and we thank the Glasgow team led by Dr Kurt Naudi for arranging this and acting so quickly. We hope with a change in the pandemic to reinstate our present-in-person meeting from 2022 onwards. In the interim we realised potentially how difficult it was to keep up to date. This conference is an effort not only to help with this, but also offer opportunity for our junior, mid and senior career colleagues to present research data, audits and cases. We were also mindful that financially this year may well have been challenging for a variety of reasons, so we have kept costs at zero for existing members and obviously also welcome any new members to the meeting for our usual annual membership fee.
I hope 2021 proves to be a more positive and improving year for us all.
All the very best.
