I gave a ten-minute talk about the power of the patient’s voice at the World Eye Hospital Annual Meeting on Friday 7th June. This was a good opportunity to tell the BUS story to a wider ‘world’ audience. Below is a tweet which sums up the presentation, with photographs showing me standing at the podium and also next to the BUS display panel with Moorfields Eye Hospital uveitis consultant Narciss Okhravi. It is quite surprising how much we have achieved since we first set BUS up in 2008.
