The summer meeting will take place online and is being organised by Dr Lucy McGeoch and Dr Neil Basu.

We are delighted to announce that booking is now open for the SSR Summer Meeting. This is a joint SSR and UKIVAS online education day event focussing on Vasculitis which will take place on Friday 21 May.

We have an exciting programme of speakers who are experts in their field. The day will feature pre-recorded talks from speakers with opportunity for live Q&A following each session.

We hope the programme will appeal to trainees, consultants and specialist nurses with an interest in Vasculitis from a range of different specialties, including but not exclusive to, rheumatologists and nephrologists.

There is no booking fee for this event. To book your place, visit: 

We would like to thank our sponsor, Vifor Pharma UK, for their support of this webinar. Please note that the scientific programme and content has not been influenced in any way by the sponsor.
