Best Presentation Leg Ulcers – Dr Kathleen Finlayson

Best Presentation Pelvic Veins – Dr Saurabh Joshi

Best e-Poster Presentation – Subbarao Kanchus Tambam

Professor Whiteley congratulated all of the winners and commented on the evenings celebrations, stating: “It was truly fantastic being able to congratulate all of our winners from tonight. There were some outstanding presentations throughout the conference, and it’s been wonderful to recognise some of the sheer talent we have in the industry, through this evenings ceremony.”

A great night to be had by all, which led onto the third and final day of the conference!
