BSPGHAN Virtual Annual Meeting- Meeting Postponed

Dear Friends,

The BSPGHAN Virtual Annual Meeting had given us a unique opportunity to get together to celebrate the friendships, talents and achievements of our Society. So it is with sadness that we are announcing that it has been necessary for the organising team to postpone the Virtual Annual Meeting that was due to take place 26th-28th January 2021. It will be rescheduled later this year.

It has been such a challenging time for nearly a year now and the difficulties continue. The heart of BSPGHAN is made up of all our members sharing a common goal and mutually supporting each other. We are stronger and more resilient  together and caring about each other has always been strong. It is important now that we focus on that aim.

It has been a difficult decision, but the consensus from the organising and scientific committee and representation from AHP, Trainees and PeGHAN,  is that this is our only option. The significant and worsening impact of COVID-19 on so many hospitals is increasingly impacting on our services, with some areas more affected than others.

We wish there to be equity of access to our meeting for Members and friends, and prefer this to be a shared live experience. Better times are expected in a few months, and we will regroup soon to make plans for rescheduling.

·         We will let you know as soon as we can when the new dates will be.

·         Accepted abstracts will be included in the meeting, and there will be no further call for abstracts.

·         The BSPGHAN Members only AGM is still going ahead for members on 27th January 5pm -6pm via Zoom and we look forward to seeing you then. Please register for the AGM here.

·         The BSPGHAN Education series is still running so please check out the website for these opportunities.

Thank you for your understanding and we are sorry for the disappointment.

Please stay safe.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Ronald Bremner and Dr Sue Protheroe

on behalf of the organising committee
