Published 08/09/2022

"On behalf of the British Society of Echocardiography and all of our members across the UK, the commonwealth and around the world I would like to offer our deepest condolences to the Royal family on the passing of Queen Elizabeth the II."

"Although deeply saddened by the news of Her Majesty’s passing we celebrate the service of Her Majesty as a beacon of stability and strength to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Her Majesty’s reign was marked by her graceful leadership, generosity and kindness to others and we could not be more grateful for Her unerring service to Her subjects."

"Our annual conference and other planned meetings will feature a silence of remembrance and we will observe the national day of mourning in grateful memory of a uniquely devoted monarch who gave so much to us all throughout her long life."
