BGPERT Face to Face Meetings

Please note our face to face meetings are postponed until further notice 

June 2020

Dear Colleagues,

Given the social distancing measures enforced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BGPERT face to face educational events have been currently been suspended and replaced with an online zoom webinar.

We recognise that this time of uncertainty affects everybody differently, the situation is changing rapidly and the health and safety of our colleagues and patients must be our first priority.

We also realise we need to offer education differently, so we will also be linking with other organisations for specific learning relating to the pandemic, and its impact and we will share this with you intermittently. 

Stay safe.
