2018 Adult TOF Seminar, London, and 2018 Family Conference, Coventry

Please scroll down to watch the videos from our information events in 2018.

2018 Family Conference

The TOFS family conference is the highlight of our year, an occasion for TOF families to get together and share experiences and for healthcare practitioners to get involved with TOFS and talk about the TOF condition.  Three of our speakers this year were practicing healthcare professionals who are also from the TOF/OA community. 

This year two of our seven speakers were parents of TOF children and two were TOF adults.

We know how much our audience enjoyed hearing from our esteemed medical colleagues, all of whom kindly gave their time freely, and we hope you enjoy watching the videos of their presentations.  


2018 Adult TOF Seminar

We were delighted to be joined by so many Adult TOFs at our meeting in London in June '18.  We had a total of 31 TOF Adults and their partners and family members attend to hear from four expert professional speakers, and to demonstrate that Adult TOFs would like something done to improve their healthcare situation.  

Our audience enjoyed hearing from renowned respiratory expert Professor Morice and from GI surgeon Mr Gossage.  Associate Professor Spaander made the journey from Rotterdam to address us also - she has published the world's most recent research into health outcomes for Adult TOFs.

We are planning a joint event for families and adults in 2019, and will engage as many medics as possible.  It's our intention to hold this in early October in the North-West of England, convenient for both Manchester and Liverpool.  Watch the 'events' tab on our website for more details as planning gets underway.
