The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis’s (ISTH) three-day conference took place at ACC Liverpool from 27 June.

A total of 1,500 leading haematologists from 75 countries discussed the latest weapons in the fight against major killers like heart attacks, strokes and deep vein thrombosis.  

The event was hosted by The Roald Dahl Haemostasis & Thrombosis Centre at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and is regarded amongst professionals as a landmark opportunity to develop worldwide understanding of the conditions.  

It also featured a whole day dedicated to encouraging trainee specialists as part of the Liverpool organisers’ commitment to sustaining levels of UK patient care for decades to come.

Prior to the event, professor Cheng-Hock Toh Professor Toh, a professor of haemotology at the University of Liverpool and clinician at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, said he hoped delegates would leave the conference – the 58th Scientific and Standardisation Meeting of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis – having experienced a true taste of Liverpool. A conference football match and a Beatles night were laid on for guests.
