"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. 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 potentially affect the capacity for cardiac surgery across Great Britain and Ireland. It is our intention to go online and hold the meeting with remote access for delegates & presenters alike. We are obliged to hold the Society’s annual general meeting and will also look to include academic content to allow practicing perfusionists to gain points towards re-accreditation. At this stage, we have only just reached the point of cancelling the conference in its physical form. We shall keep the membership informed of how the meeting will go ahead online in due course."

SCPS AGM 2020 is Ethical MedTech conference vetting system (CVS) compliant. The CSV is a unique initiative in the healthcare industry. It is a centralised decision-making system that encourages transparency and consistency in medical education events and alleviates the complex administrative burden previously faced by MedTech Europe and Mecomed members, who were constrained to make their own determinations on whether or not a third-party educational event they wished to provide support to was compliant with the associations’ respective Codes.
Adult cardiac surgery, congenital surgery, human factors and interactive sessions are just some of the topics we cover in this three-day course.
3-day delegates receive 8 CPD points. Our course is College of Clinical Perfusion Scientists (CCPS) of GB and Ireland accredited.
We provide well balanced hot lunches, snacks, tea and coffee during our events.
3 day delegates receive access to our video archive
All delegates receive a free SCPS course bag.
We have single/variant day registration options available for those who cannot attend the full course. See options below.
There are a number of flexible registration options for both society members and non members offering excellent value.
