Cancelled due to COVID-19
Plymouth Postgraduate Medical Centre, Derriford Hospital, Plymouth, PL6 8DH
In order to reduce the risk to our members and the public during the on-going COVID-19 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 and further cancellations may be announced in due course.
If you have paid a registration fee, you will be reimbursed by our Events Registration Team in due course. Please note that if the booking fee was paid by your employer, the refund will be made directly to your employer using the original payment method.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
