Vision UK conference speakers confirmed

The organiser of the 2015 Vision UK conference has revealed the full programme of speakers who will feature at the one-day event in June

London Central Hall
The full speaker programme of experts who will take to the stage during the 2015 Vision UK has been revealed. 

To be held in London’s Central Hall, Westminster on 18 June, it is the first time that the one-day conference will offer a programme which consists of five lecture streams for delegates to choose from. 

Hosted under the theme ‘Working together to deliver the UK Vision Strategy,’ each programme track is designed to focus on delivering different aspects of the UK Vision Strategy and to provide a more tailored conference based on delegates’ interests. 

The streams cover: Making the case for improving eye health; Transforming patient care to ensure timely treatment and support; Empowering adults with sight loss to regain their independence; A world without barriers for children and young people and Social inclusion: transforming lives through digital technology. 

Speakers include the chief executive of the Faculty of Public Health, David Allen, chair of National Eye Health Week, David Cartwright, and head of policy and campaigns at Independent Age, Andrew Kaye. 

Senior manager for the UK Vision Strategy, Katherine Raven, said: “We are delighted that this year’s Vision UK 2015 conference will feature such a wide range of leading experts covering different aspects of the UK Vision Strategy. We encourage everyone working within the eye health, sight loss and related sectors to book their early bird places by 17 April so they can join us for a day of relevant and engaging content, tailored to a wide range of professional interests.” 

An early bird discount for those booking a place at the conference ends at midnight on 17 April. The early bird rate is £84 for voluntary and £114 for non-voluntary sector attendees.
