60th Anniversary Annual Scientific Meeting

March 30 - March 31

£25 – £505

While the risk of contracting Coronavirus is still low, the number of cases continues to increase across the country. The CSC has to consider the potential for an expected change in national policy to restrict travel for routine activity as issued by the UK Government. Part of our consideration has been to account for such a last minute cancellation and the impact on our forthcoming Annual Scientific Meeting. With this risk in mind, the committee has regrettably taken the decision to postpone and reschedule the event, with a deferment to October 8th and 9th 2020 (at same venue, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Stratford Upon Avon). Bookings will temporarily remain closed whilst we make the administrative changes. Bookings for October will reopen shortly.

View Programme

The 2020 CSC Annual Scientific Meeting will feature:

  • The Annual Kelsey Lecture, The Story of Decontamination in Endoscopy – Gluteraldyhyde and Beyond. Presented by Dr Helen Griffiths, Decontamination Advisor for the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG)
  • The debate – to be or not to be? do AE(D)s have a long-term future? Wayne Spencer and Sulisti Holmes come face to face – a spectacle not to be missed!
  • CJD guidance update: changing our approach to device processing, including Dr K Sinka, CJD Lead, Public Health England
  • A focus on environmental issues relative to decontamination of medical devices
  • Water quality testing, the complete life-cycle – or is it? Dr David Jenkins, Consultant Medical Microbiologist and Lead Infection Control Doctor at Leicester Royal Infirmary
  • Decontamination equipment testing – a step too far?


This event is perfect for all individuals with an interest in decontamination and infection prevention, including:

  • Decontamination Technicians
  • Decontamination Managers
  • Infection Prevention Practitioners
  • Engineers
  • Providers of Healthcare Services, Products and Equipment


This event not only presents the chance to learn, but it also provides the opportunity to network with multi-disciplinary decontamination practitioners from across the UK.

In addition to our conference programme, we are also offering delegates an exciting opportunity to play golf on Sunday 29th.

Due to the immense popularity of this event, our Gold and Silver packages are now full. You can still book to attend both the days, as well as the gala dinner on Monday 30th, but you will need to find alternative accommodation. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but we hope to still see you at our 60th anniversary event.
