COVID Update

This section of the website will be updated regularly with new information as it becomes available.

 

2020 was a difficult year for learning in traditional formats. Many events for us to keep up to date and advance our knowledge have been cancelled due to the pandemic.

We are all experiencing fatigue with online congresses and courses, and the ability to engage with colleagues is not addressed with this format.

 

Our Congress is scheduled to take place as planned. At present, it will run as a SOCIALLY DISTANCED CONGRESS with the following steps due to take place to protect delegates and faculty but maintain the learning experience:

 

  1. SINGLE DISTANCED SEATING FOR THE LECTURE HALL WITH ONLINE QUESTIONS IN ADDITION TO THE MICROPHONE STATIONS

  2. PRE-PREPARED SNACKS/LUNCHES AND INCREASED STATIONS WITH LARGE AREAS TO ALLOW INTERACTION AT DISTANCES

  3. MASKS TO BE WORN AT ALL TIMES IN BETWEEN TRANSIT AND WHEN IN CONTACT WITH OTHER DELEGATES AND FACULTY

  4. TEMPERATURE TESTING FOR ALL ADMITTANCE TO THE CONGRESS

  5. ALCOHOL GEL AND MASKS PROVIDED FOR ALL STAFF, DELEGATES AND FACULTY

  6. HAND WASHING STATIONS READILY AVAILABLE

  7. FULL REFUND OF CONGRESS FEE IF CANCELLATION TAKES PLACE DUE TO PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS

  8. LIMITATION OF NUMBERS TO ENSURE SAFETY OF ALL PRESENT

  9. TOILET FACILITIES WITH SAFE ENTRY AND EXIT SYSTEM

 

Depending on the status of vaccination programmes, proof of vaccination may also be necessary.  Current UK guidance will be strictly adhered to for the event, and as the response to the pandemic evolves we will update this guidance.
