Amazing success for the

December 4, 2011

The website of the Society ( has welcome thousands of visitors within the first 2 months of its life. The most visited sector was that of the ‘Thoracic blue book 2011’. There was a stunning 14,444 visitors within 30 days, bringing the number of visitors per day up to the astonishing 480! The advertisement of the ‘HACS, ECHO and ACTA autumn meeting 2011’ was also a great success, with 22,321 visitors.

The information about the ‘ACTA-SCTS joint meeting in 2012’ has attracted 1,616 visitors so far (27 visitors per day). There is also some great interest by the commissioners, with 837 visitors so far (14 visitors per day).

We will soon publish the results of our survey on commissioning in England. Click here to find more information on the survey (and don’t forget to complete the surveymonkey questionnaire).

We still need to do some work on the patients’ sector of the website. Your ideas are very welcome. Please, send your suggestions to Isabelle Ferner at  (020 7869 6893) or Leon Hadjinikolaou  (0116 2502 450)
