This year is our special BEVA-VCS Crossover meeting where we are excited to be welcoming our equine colleagues to the VCS. The theme of our programme is “sudden cardiac death” with human, equine and small animal insights from world-renowned speakers including Professor Sanjay Sharma from St George’s Hospital and a leading expert in sudden death in human athletes, and Katharyn Mitchell and Catriona Lyle who will be updating us on dangerous arrhythmias and sudden death in horses respectively. VCS members Emily Dutton, Matthew Keane, Pascale Smets and Mike Davies will be providing small animal perspectives on sudden cardiac death. It is a jam-packed schedule with other items including a thought provoking ethical dilemmas panel hosted by Paul Wotton on the Saturday, Adrian Boswood’s musings on reference intervals and diagnostic cut-offs, insights from John Rush and Lesley Young, along with latest conference updates, interesting case reports and finishing with vignettes from Simon Swift. ​There will be plenty of ​time to catch up with ​friends and colleagues and make new connections.
