We love it when colleagues share their experiences and impressions on the meetings:
One of the wonderful things about the Rb-NET MDT meetings is that we review a new Rb patient’s case with other physicians to make sure that we formulate an optimal plan for our patients based on their own individual needs.

The Rb-NET MDT program has held two Zoom meetings during the Covid crisis in which we from Ruharo Eye Centre have presented RB children under our care who have complex problems. The opportunity for discussion and input from colleagues around the world has been of great value. It had been particularly helpful because I as lead clinician am isolated in UK unable at present to return, but the team is continuing the service. The interaction with worldwide experts has been an important boost to their confidence. The parents also are very appreciative of this international support in the care of their children. We are keen that the program must continue even when normality returns.
