 Statement from RSC BMCS Committee

14th September 2020

With the ongoing Coronavirus situation and as a result of RSC recommendations, the RSC BMCS Committee has decided to hold all events during the first half of 2021 as virtual only. Arrangements for these symposia are under review and these events have been temporarily removed from the schedule until the new arrangements have been agreed. These will be notified in due course.


Please check www.rscbmcs.org and our social media outlets (Twitter @RSC_BMCS, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram @RSCBMCS, YouTube) for any updates. 


For current information regarding the virus, please refer to the websites of the UK Government and Public Health England, or the World Health Organisation.
