Postponed: Portsmouth Branch Diabetes learning event

The RCN Portsmouth Branch team have decided to postpone this event due to the ongoing coronavirus Covid19 situation.

The RCN has taken the difficult decision to cancel all events between now and the end of May 2020. As a Royal College we have a responsibility to play our part in containing the spread of the virus whilst ensuring the safety of our delegates. We will continue to monitor the situation.

The Branch hopes to reschedule this event at a later date due to its popularity.

Thank you for your understanding.
