Welcome to our 'new' website
To ensure the longevity of the website we are redeveloping the website in WordPress. As there is quite a lot of content in the original website it's going to take a while to fully migrate to WordPress. We are starting with this Home page and the other top-level menu pages. These have some content and then link to the original site for the remaining content.
Where a link takes you to the old website you will get a warning that you are going to an insecure website. This is nothing to worry about and it's OK to proceed to the old site.
Dr Claire Thomas speaking at the 2016 Reunion
QE(K)A Annual Reunion and AGM 2021
Saturday 02 October 2021 starting 1400hrs
After much deliberation the Committee has decided that this year's Annual Reunion and AGM should be a virtual event as last year's was.
This is partly because we are conscious that QE(K)A members might still be nervous about large groups meeting indoors but also, more pragmatically, because Kings College are still not clear on whether they are taking bookings for events such as our Annual Reunion.
We plan to improve on last years format. After the formalities of the AGM we will have a 'conversation' session where our very own Dr Claire Thomas who is a Consultant and Director of Infection Prevention and Control for NHS Hampshire Foundation Trust in will be in conversation with, again, our Professor Seamus Higson who is an Emeritus Professor at the University Of Chichester.
The virtual event will be via Zoom and details will be sent out to all QE(K)A members nearer the event. However if you have any questions about the AGM before then please contact the webmaster on email@example.com
Professor Seamus Higson
We have been informed that Michael Sprackling passed away on 27th August. His son tells us that he always loved his time both at Queen Elizabeth and Kings College and looked forward to those occasions he met up with former colleagues. The funeral is on Fri 10th September; please contact the webmaster if you want details of the arrangements.
Professor Brian Gardner died in January; a full-page obituary appeared in the Guardian on 15th April 2021.
The AGM 2020 was a virtual event and included a distinguished visitor joining us form Australia. Click here for a picture of the attendees.
We have revised the Constitution to bring it up-to-date and updated the page with minutes of Committee meetings and AGMs and associated documents, plus copies of the Accounts.
The latest memorabilia, introduced at this year’s Annual Reunion, are cufflinks and a tie pin. The pins cost £4.00 and the cufflinks £8.00 and can be ordered from Paul Ogden, the QE(K)A Chair via the webmaster
We have in stock (March 2021) mugs, cufflinks and tie pins. Unfortunately the shield and scarves are just too expensive to get made without a substantial order. If you want to order a mug, tie pin or cufflinks contact the webmaster.

A select band of people meet a couple of times a year, drink beer (OK, these days it might be a skinny, de-caf latte), and keep the Association running. The main role of the committee is to organize the Annual Reunion. As the Association used to charge a membership fee there is a legal responsibility to properly account for the Association’s funds.
