West Midlands Region Autumn Meeting 2021

Thu 23 September 2021
This meeting has applied for 5 credits of CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP)
This event is a local forum covering the latest scientific research and the best clinical practice in care of older people. This meeting will cover core areas of interest to all specialists responsible for the health care of older people and is open to attendees from near and far.


The BGS has taken the decision to  postpone the meeting until 23rd September 2021

Given the escalation of the number of people in hospitals, the increasing withdrawal of study leave and colleagues isolating with COVID-19 symptoms, we took the necessary decision to postpone. As the leading health organisation for improving healthcare for older people, the BGS 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.

We are sorry the meeting won't happen but hope you understand the reasons for the decision. Given the extraordinary circumstances, we will transfer your registration to the next meeting and communicate those dates when they are confirmed. If you couldn't make the rescheduled dates, or prefer we'd refund your registration fee where applicable in full. Let us know  if you would prefer your registration to be transferred to a later meeting by emailing registrations@bgs.org.uk.
