Zoom into Summer series of Pouch webcasts 2021
(Updated 7 May 2021)

Following last years highly succesful Zoom into Summer Series, we are delighted to announce that we will be repeating it this year. Red Lion Group will be hosting a series of Pouch related webcasts (using the ZOOM facility), with guest speakers talking on a variety of subjects that will be of interest to our community.

Attendance is FREE and is open to Red Lion Group members and non-members alike.

As you may know, we have previously hosted an annual in-person Information Day at St. Mark’s hospital, but due to COVID, for the time being we not able to hold an in-person event. However, our Zoom into Summer series will be a chance to catch up with some of the speakers you would have heard from at the Info day and meet online with other Pouchees!

Keep an eye out for updates, including additional speakers and dates and times.
