There will be several MECS peer discussion events (3 CET points) run by the Primary Eyecare Company (PEC) over the next 6 months to ensure all locally accredited performers will be able to participate: it is a mandatory element of the MECS contract to attend one of these events.

We have a limited amount of space available, so please book as soon as possible and feel free to tell your colleagues about this fantastic educational event.

You will be placed on the waiting list if all places have been taken.
