I just wanted to invite you and your team to 2 exciting and high powered courses in 2019. As they are highly sought after, early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment. They are very comprehensive and are being delivered by a panel of national experts. This is a great opportunity to meet friends and colleagues and grow as an ophthalmic community through exchange of medical knowledge and new ideas. 

Each of those 2 courses would provide you with 7.5 CPD points from the Royal college of Ophthalmologists (15 CPD points for both courses) and they are already included in the college's CPD diary.  CET points are being applied for from the GOC for the Glaucoma in a Day course.
The aims of these courses are improvement in medical care by sharing medical information/education. The registration fees are kept to a minimal so that maximum number of delegates could benefit from them. There are reduced rates for technicians, nurses, opticians/optometrists and orthoptists who are very much an integral part of our glaucoma teams; please do encourage them to attend. There are early bird discounts on both the courses as the registration fees would go up by £20 in all categories for both the courses after 30.11.2018.
It has been a painstaking journey to put these courses together-I sincerely hope you would enjoy them and you and your team would reap the benefit from attending them. 
You can register/book your place online using the links below. You will find the full details including the full programmes and the venue etc from the links. The venues chosen are quite central and are extremely well connected by road, rail and air and there are plenty of free parking facilities in both the venues. There is a discount of £50 for those booking both the courses!
