POMCTN Spring Event 2020 CANCELLED

Event planned for 5-6 May 2020 will no longer take place

We are sorry to announce that the POMCTN Spring Meeting scheduled for 5-6 May 2020 has been cancelled.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) has taken the decision to cancel all meetings scheduled to be held at the College through to the end of May 2020. The Anaesthesia 2020 conference has also been cancelled.

This is due to the on-going global COVID-19 situation and the RCoA's understandable wish to reduce the risk to members and the public.

The POMCTN entirely supports the RCoA in this decision. We apologise to all our delegates and speakers for any inconvenience caused.

As a Medical Royal College, the RCoA has a responsibility to play its part in containing the spread of the virus whilst ensuring the safety of our delegates. Anaesthetists and intensive care practitioners are being called upon to care for patients with COVID-19 and therefore it is in the best interest of the NHS, members and the wider public to postpone these events.

Professor Ravi Mahajan, President of the Royal College of Anaesthetists said: “Protecting the health of our members so they can continue their critically important work, but also of our staff, external partners and the public is paramount. With our conference(s) attracting a global audience, we are taking a responsible approach to protecting the health of vast numbers of clinicians from all over the world when they are needed by their patients.”

RCoA will continue to monitor the situation for events and courses from June onwards and will make a further announcement on these in the coming weeks.

POMCTN would like to thank our members, delegates and speakers for their understanding and cooperation in this matter.
