The Queen's message to The Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium


The Countess of Wessex, Vice-Patron of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, today read the following message from The Queen, at The Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium. The Queen is Patron of The Trust.

"I am pleased to welcome you to St James’s Palace as you come together to celebrate the work of the Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium.

"Through collaboration and partnership over the past five years, the Consortium has helped many thousands of people throughout the Commonwealth, and has positively affected the way eye health is delivered.

"Without the work and support of each and every partner organisation, this would not have been achieved. Whether you are involved in research and development, the delivery of training, or working as an ophthalmologist, I extend my thanks on behalf of those whose sight you seek to save.

"I wish you all an enjoyable and successful meeting."
