Prior to the AGM starting there will be a talk by our guest speaker Mr James Kirwan MA FRCOphth. The title of Mr Kirwan’s talk is: “Priority Setting for Glaucoma: Are we managing it NICEly?” Attendees will be able to claim one CET point for the lecture. Click on the following for the Agenda for the evening, previous Minutes, the Chair's Report and Finance spreadsheet. We currently have two vacancies on the Management Committee for representatives (ideally Fareham & Gosport and Southampton City) but this is not set in stone. Unfortunately no nominations have been forthcoming since the LOC sent out the notification of the AGM. If you wish to be a part of the management committee please speak to Roisin Carruthers (Chair) or Anne Gill (Hon Secretary) on the night. There are still places available to attend the AGM so please support your LOC and confirm your intention to attend including GOC Number and any dietary requirements by emailing isilk@hampshireloc.org.uk  before Monday, 28 May 2018.
