College events postponed

Publication date: 18 March 2020

The College has decided to postpone all events from now until 12 June. This includes the Spring General Meeting which had been planned for 15 May. The situation is fast-changing and in light of most recent government guidance, we have taken this decision to enable GPs to concentrate on the delivery of patient care during a period in which the NHS and its staff will be under increasing pressure.

For any postponed events that carry a fee, delegates will be able to transfer to re-planned events later in the year or to receive a full refund.

We will be contacting all delegates who are booked onto any affected events, but if you have any queries please do contact the organiser or our dedicated email for COVID-19 issues at:

We will continue to focus on delivering support, tools and guidance to members and all GPs as they deal with the impact of COVID-19. You can access the latest information and guidance via the home page of the College website.

We would also like to reiterate the best ways to avoid catching or spreading Coronavirus are: 

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often, particularly when you get home or to work
  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is unavailable
  • Ensure you cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when you cough or sneeze
  • Ensure used tissues are thrown away immediately and you wash your hands
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes if your hands are not clean

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult period.
