Dear Colleague

Courses for general practitioners have been provided at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (formerly Special Health Authority) for over twenty-five years. Variations on the theme have included a five day course, three day course and an occasional half day or one day sub-specialist topic teaching session.

After the overwhelming success of last year’s meeting, I am pleased to invite you to this two day course on 1st and 2nd December, 2014 presenting a varied and comprehensive programme designed to complement undergraduate and occasional postgraduate teaching, which may have been obtained elsewhere.

The course will be relevant to GPs of varying experience – an essential guide for the less experienced GP trainee and a useful revision aid for the more experienced practitioner. It will provide a practical guide to the diagnosis and management of the conditions of the eye most commonly encountered in general practice.

Speakers are highly regarded Moorfields consultants with a track record of excellence in presentation. In accordance with CPD guidance all speakers have been evaluated by delegates at previous events and have received very positive feedback.

The 2014 event will be held at the Inmarsat Conference Centre, 99 City Road, London.  Delegates are encouraged to bring their own ophthalmoscopes as there will be limited time for practical demonstrations during the course.

The inclusion of a quiz is designed to stimulate interest in the topics and provide an informal and interactive component. A prize will be awarded to the winner.

I am pleased to announce this course again and look forward to receiving critical feedback from delegates.

Best regards
