The BCS (British Cardiovascular Society), formerly known as the Cardiac Club, is the world’s oldest cardiac society. Next year, the Society turns 100!

In 1922, Thomas Lewis chaired the first meeting and since then, the Society has gone from strength to strength and to this day strives to be the voice of cardiology in the UK and the lead support for all who work in cardiovascular care and research. There is an exciting line-up in the programme for our Centenary celebrations.

Some of the highlights to look forward to are:

  • The BCS Digital Museum. A new online resource of the Museum Archives and Historical Collection located in 9 Fitzroy Square, BCS Headquarters.
  • 100 Voices – a series of recorded oral histories which fill form part of the BCS archive, to be made available as podcasts and soundbites
  • Centenary lectures – these are keynote lectures aimed at highlighting the heritage and history of the BCS and significant developments of cardiovascular care as well as looking ahead to the future.
  • Centenary edition of Heart Journal, co-owned by BCS.
  • 100 years of cardiology programme at the BCS Annual Conference 2022.
