The Society of Clinical Perfusion Scientists of Great Britain and Ireland Committee, cordially invite you to join us for the 47th Congress on Perfusion, 5th-7th November 2021.

Core topics: Cerebral protection and coagulation management. 

“The decision to hold the event in person has always been the desire of the Executive committee. The last year and a half would have seen us all working in less familiar circumstances and many of us will still be living with these changes. It is really important that we can create a safe and supportive environment to meet. The value of this congress is not only to share in learning and experience, but also to remind ourselves we are a huge support network for each other, which cannot be fully recognised in a virtual event. I appreciate a large in person event will be the first that many have attended since 23rd March 2020. I have been working with the hotel to maintain some Covid 19 safety measures are kept, so attendees feel comfortable and confident to return to such a venue. It is important that we show respectful behaviours as we return to our new normal at differing paces.”

Society Of Clinical perfusion Scientists


We are living in unprecedented times, which inevitably lead to unprecedented circumstances and difficult decisions. It is with great regret that I have to announce that this year’s Annual Congress of The Society of Clinical Perfusion Scientists will not be taking place in physical form. The decision has been taken by the executive committee after full discussion and careful consideration. We have a duty of care not only to you, our colleagues, but also to our patients. We feel that we cannot risk the possibility of causing an outbreak of Covid-19 within our professional group as this would not only endanger the health and welfare of us, but also potentially affect the capacity for cardiac surgery across Great Britain and Ireland.

We have moved the meeting online and are happy to invite you to our 2020 Webinar and AGM. We look forward to (virtually) seeing as many of you as possible over the 6th and 7th of November to enjoy a full academic programme and the Annual General Meetings of our Society and College.

Please follow the links to find out more and to register.
