The Royal College of Anaesthetists has taken the decision to cancel this event. We have taken this decision due to the on-going global COVID-19 situation in order to reduce the risk to our members and the public.

As a Medical Royal College we have a responsibility to play our 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, our members and the wider public to cancel our programme.

We are in the process of informing all delegates, speakers and partners of the decision.

More information can be found here.

Hear what our 2019 delegates thought: "An excellent course, well organised with first class speakers. I return to work with increased confidence that I am equipped with the tools to make difficult decisions and manage challenging cardiac patients more safely.
