The Cleft Congress has been postponed to 11 – 15 July 2022.

This Congress is the one opportunity, we in the global cleft community have to meet up with each other, face to face, in a 4-year period. It became clear that holding the Congress in 2021 would make attendance difficult for many colleagues. We believe that by holding the Congress in 2022, it will give all of us a better opportunity to settle into a post-COVID “normal” and will make it easier for all of you to attend, participate (and enjoy!) Cleft 2022 and to re-unite with colleagues across the globe.

Thank you for your understanding and patience in these unprecedented circumstances and please allow us a few days to update the the rest of the Congress website with new dates and information.


Dear Friends,

On behalf of my colleagues in Edinburgh and the CFSGBI, I warmly invite you to join us in July 2022, for the 14th International Cleft Congress.

Our custom built conference venue, the EICC, is surrounded by a range of hotels, and cafes, in the very heart of Edinburgh – a short walk from many famous tourist sites, such as Edinburgh Castle and the Queen’s Palace at Holyrood. Our long summer days leave plenty of time to explore, with 17 hours of daylight.

We have much to learn from each other by sharing clinical experience, audit and research and building on and developing new collaborations.

As we say in Scotland – Ceud mìlle fàilte (A Hundred Thousand Welcomes)!

Dr Felicity V Mehendale
