The team that brought you EuroSCORE II is reunited to organise EuroSCORE 3. We look forward to renewing old acquaintances and welcoming new collaborators. If you have any questions about EuroSCORE 3, please do get in touch. Christopher Smith will be able to address most of your queries but both Chris and Sam Nashef welcome contact.
