With the introduction of tiered restriction levels across the UK to slow the resurgence of COVID-19, we are mindful of the impact on an already stretched healthcare profession working at capacity to deliver the highest standards of care for their patients. The demand for clinical staff and the ability of trainees to continue their progression through training and assessment is vital to ensuring the sustainability of the workforce.
Throughout this pandemic, our College has sought to provide certainty and clarity with regards to our delivery of education activity. Our conferences and teaching courses will continue to remain online for the foreseeable future; procedural courses which cannot be delivered online and are important for progression through training will continue to run in a COVID-secure way.
We will continue to work closely with our colleagues in the Academy of Royal Colleges, and our Fellows and Members to ensure the highest standards of safety are maintained to protect our faculty, delegates, staff and patients.
