Dear Colleagues,

As we adjust to the the continuing impact of Covid -19, it will come as no surprise to you that our Winter Conference 2020 will not be going ahead as a ‘face to face’ event. Following the cancellation of the summer conference in Manchester , there was then the hope that we might be able to meet in in London this coming December. The  ongoing impacts of the pandemic on our communities , workplaces and personal lives have put paid to this.

Instead, on Thursday  December 3rd (1.15-4.00)  BSG will be hosting an afternoon webinar,with a selection of pertinent  presentations and an online poster competition (entries close November 27th 2020)

The Society’s Annual General Meeting will take place, also by videoconference, at the end of the webinar.
