A multidisciplinary study day organised by the MASIC Foundation with leading speakers, reflecting the diverse professional roles required to coordinate and deliver effective and individualised care for women experiencing Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injury (OASI).

The meeting will involve a vote on the following motion: 'This house believes that implementing the judgment Montgomery-v-Lanarkshire Health Board and warning of Anal Incontinence will inevitably raise the rate of elective caesarean section'.

There will be a preliminary vote at the start followed by a final vote after the meeting all on line and reported back to attendees and the press. This is an open meeting. The public are very welcome. There will be members of the medical profession present as well as people from women’s health organisations and support groups. There will be a chance to ask questions and comment. The meeting will be held in the MG room, where refreshments will be served. Speakers have been asked to tailor their talks for lay people.

Venue: YMCA London, 41 Fitzroy Square, London, W1T 6AQ


Cost: £40 (£25 for students and OASI mothers) includes lunch and refreshments.
