Coronavirus (COVID-19): Current Information

We are following official governmental advice and will continue to do so.

We do not plan to cancel or postpone any of our courses held in Edinburgh.

We have the technology in place to deliver this course digitally and if it becomes impractical for meetings to take place, or if delegates prefer not to travel to Edinburgh, we will be able to offer a personal webstream for the course. External CPD credits will be issued for this in the same way as for attending the meeting in Edinburgh.

We also understand that it may become difficult or inappropriate for delegates to take time away from clinical work to attend educational events or for speakers to deliver lectures at the time agreed.We may need to record talks in advance and broadcast them as part of the programme.We will publish the content from this course online after the event and this will be made available to delegates, as we acknowledge you may not be able to take a full 4-days for education, or the time difference may not work for you if you are not travelling to the UK.

We will be developing a plan for the delivery of this course two weeks in advance and will email all registered delegates to communicate this. At this time we will give you the option of receiving a personal webstream of the event instead of travelling to the College.

Cancellation policy

Our cancellation policy remains unchanged: delegates may cancel their registration for a course more than 21 days in advance and receive a full refund.

Travel advice

Please refer to the travel advice issued by your own government.The college is not able to advise you whether you should travel or not.
