Author: Anaesthesia 2020 postponed - Delegate FAQs

Why is Anaesthesia 2020 being postponed?

As a professional body responsible for the specialty of anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine throughout the UK, the College takes seriously its responsibility to protect clinicians and the public from contracting COVID-19 and to ensure that the NHS is as prepared as it can be for increased demand.

As most of those attending the annual conference are doctors and other health professionals, this move signals the College’s concern to protect the NHS frontline workforce as best it can.
