Dear Colleagues 

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to this years VASBI Annual Scientific meeting. We had again hoped to be able to meet in person in Glasgow but the continued uncertainties around COVID 19 meant we made a decision a few months ago to build on the successes of last years virtual meeting and go virtual again for 2021. So many of us are desperate to get back to the camaraderie, sociality and interactive learning that face to face meetings provide and I am confident that in the fulness of time we will. For now there remain many benefits of connecting virtually not least your safety which remains our highest priority. 

This years virtual programme will run across two days on the 16th and 17th of September. We have deliberately planned to run the sessions from early afternoon to early evening as this enables many of you to have flexibility with your work schedules and be able to connect. It also provides us an opportunity to enable our access colleagues in different parts of the world to join us and contribute to the shared learning. We have ensured that some of the renowned elements of VASBI have been maintained within the programme including the Mega MDT, a VANS session and multidisciplinary panel discussion.   

We continue to work closely with our industry partners and are hugely grateful to them for their support and contribution to the meeting with a number of sponsored sessions throughout programme. Please do connect for these as it's a great opportunity to discover all that our industry partners can offer us as we provide access care for our patients. 

Finally my big thanks goes to each and every one of you for all you continue to do for dialysis patients in your units and for the organisation. I am very mindful that many of you have had to work very differently this past 18 months during the various waves of the pandemic as well as try and maintain services. Hopefully I will be thanking you in person at the 2022 meeting. 

With Best Wishes to you all

James
