April 14th to 17th sees the annual Charing Cross Vascular Congress, now renamed the CX Symposium, taking place in London. The event has become quite an institution since its inauguration in 1978. Our own staff can remember attending in the late eighties when it was still a small affair, albeit even then with a list of the most esteemed global speakers and hosted by the charismatic Professor Roger Greenhalgh.
On its website the congress describes itself thus: For 33 years Charing Cross has attracted thousands of vascular specialists to West London. We have a loyal following of nearly 1200 vascular surgeons and in the last six years we have attracted over 600 interventional radiologists and interventional cardiologists. The Charing Cross Symposium attracts senior vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists. Last year 1640 of those attending were senior vascular specialists and nearly 200 were vascular surgeons in training. The Council of the European Society for Vascular Surgery and the European Board of Vascular Surgery meet onsite during the CX Symposium recognizing their foundations.
Now the event takes place at Imperial College, London and the full programme is available to view here.
