CSC scientific conference will ‘push the boundaries’

View digital issue version

Dr. Jimmy Walker, chair of the Central Sterilising Club, focuses on the highlights of this month’s 2024 Annual Scientific Conference. He explains that delegates will be ‘in for a big surprise’. The event takes place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Gerrard’s Cross from 15-16 April.

"If you go down to the woods today, you're in for a big surprise". Those are the often repeated lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy that were added to the tune of The Teddy Bears Picnic in 1932, by the Irish songwriter, to the tune composed by John Walter Bratton, in 1907. While not as old as this tune, the Central Sterilising Club (CSC) is celebrating its 64th year in 2024.

As a Club, the committee is grateful for your support and we serve to deliver what you, the members, want in our scientific meetings. The Club remains a not-for-profit organisation, where everyone is treated equally, and we continue to independently run our conferences without trade stands and commercial shows.

However, do you ever get the feeling when you turn up to the latest conference that the ideas that are being thrashed about are the same-old, same-old? To quote a phrase from Henry Ford, "If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got."
