About this event

  • Date and time Wed 9 Oct 2019 from 8:30am to 8:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by General Practice with Primary Healthcare, Vision UK

This multidisciplinary conference will bring together health care professionals and vision experts to discuss, engage and create positive strategies for the vision sector. The conference will encompass interactive workshops with tangible takeaways, present new research and updates for all involved in eye health and associated care.

This is a joint conference between the RSM GP with Primary Health Care Section, Vision UK and in association with the RSM Ophthalmology Section.

The national conference will be themed around the four strategic aims of Vision UK:

  • Evidence and statistics
  • Research, cures and treatments
  • Services, support and care
  • Public perception of sight loss

The conference has been created to allow different professions to pick and choose from a wide spectrum of lectures and interactive workshops which run concurrently but still have the opportunity for all delegates to meet and discuss key issues and how they can work together to achieve better outcomes. This conference is very interactive in its learning objectives.

Speakers will be from a range of organisations and specialties with plenty of time for constructive interaction, question and answer sessions and networking.

After this event delegates are welcome to attend the award ceremony (details to be confirmed) and enjoy cocktails and canapes.

All are welcome to attend this meeting from medical professionals, social care workers, vision charities to patients themselves. 

*Please be aware that AHP (Allied Health Professionals) include all individuals from Vision UK members and registered charities.
