BADS Virtual Conference 18th March 2021

Virtual Conference to be held on Thursday 18th March 2021

We have now made the difficult decision not to hold a face to face conference in 2021. We feel this is the responsible course of action in the current climate with the surge in cases of COVID-19 in many areas of the UK, resulting in increased pressure on NHS staff and general uncertainty as to whether it would be possible to hold a COVID safe conference in line with government guidelines.

Following the virtual conference on 18th March 2021, all registered delegates are now able to access the recording of the event. At the same time the Posters and Exhibitors Showcase are available to view until 26th March. Please take time to vote for your favourite poster and enter the competition to win a £100 Amazon voucher by collecting the magic word from each exhibitor's profile and rearranging them into 2 sentences relating to BADS. (Your answer can be submitted on the feedback form.)
