BGS Meetings from September 2020

The BGS plans to resume meetings from September 2020. We encourage delegates to register in advance if they plan to attend. Joining the conference via a livestream and Slido is available now. To follow government guidance and Public Health England recommendations, we will be flexible delivering the meetings.

We want to minimise risk to those looking after the health of older people. To protect attendees or follow the evolving guidance, we can move to this to a virtual event if needed. If this occurs, we want to reassure you that we will contact registered delegates in advance. You will be able to amend your registration or get a refund.
