As an organisation of doctors committed to providing safe and excellent care to our patients, and as an employer, we take seriously our role in helping to protect the public from the spread of the COVID-19 virus, while maintaining our services as effectively as possible. We are, therefore, continuing to monitor the situation daily and follow the advice and updates from the Chief Medical Officers and Public Health England (acting for all of the UK).
Based on the current predictions of impact to our services, specific advice is available for how we are dealing with exams, events and AAC panels. Clinical information for clinical radiologists and clinical oncologists has also been developed, along with links to other useful sources of advice on our coronavirus resources page.
Due to the increasing demands on the time of our Fellows and members, the decision has been taken that board and committee meetings scheduled between now and the summer will generally not be expected to be held. In the coming weeks we will be assessing if certain work programmes and projects should continue.
Please note that the above position is subject to change in response to national guidance and the fast-moving nature of the situation. We will continue to keep this information under review and update accordingly. You are advised to keep checking back for the latest information.
