ESCFS 2022

2nd September 2021.

Dear Friends and Colleagues


First and foremost I hope you and your families are all well.

I would like to update you of the latest news regarding the ESCFS and the ISCFS.

You will be aware that owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, I postponed the ESCFS meeting in Oxford from 2020 to 2022. Following this, the council meeting of the ISCFS voted that the forthcoming ISCFS Congress which was originally scheduled for Oct 2021 in China should be postponed to Oct 2022. Thereafter the ISCFS congress meetings were planned to take place every 2 years i.e. 2024, 2026 etc. As a result, I then again rescheduled the ESCFS meeting in Oxford from Sept 2022 to Sept 2023 so that our society alternated with the ISCFS.

Very recently, the ISCFS have informed me that the meeting in China in 2022 will now not take place and offered me the option of the ESCFS to take place again in 2022 with the ISCFS meeting taking place next in the USA in 2023 and then in China in 2025.

I have therefore agreed to re instigate the ESCFS meeting in Oxford in Sept 2022. This will mean that the long standing tradition of the ESCFS taking place in the ‘even years' will continue to alternate with the ISCFS taking place in the ‘odd years'.

I have just secured new dates for the venues in Oxford as Friday 23rd September and Saturday24th September 2022 with the preceding day (i.e. Thursday 22nd September) as a KLS Martin and DePuy Synthes pre meeting workshop (as our major sponsors).

I plan to keep the Oxford venue, eminent guest speakers and social programme for September 2022 so that the true spirit and soul of the ESCFS meeting will be maintained without compromise.

I intend to relaunch the Oxford ESCFS meeting website as soon as possible and I would ask you to look out for the dates for registration and abstract submission.

I look forward to seeing you all in Oxford in September 2022.

Best wishes,


Mr David Johnson MA BM BCh DM FRCS (Plast)
