Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, and in a continuing bid to “flatten the curve”, we have opted to change the format of our annual Research Day from a one-and-a-half day to a one-day event.
As the situation remains highly fluid, we will re-evaluate the matter in June to ascertain whether this year’s event will be able to proceed as planned or whether we will need to postpone until 2021.
For now, could we please ask that you kindly diarise the proposed date (Wednesday, 28 October) for the 2020 Department of Paediatrics & Child Health Research Day (see here) and ensure that clinics are cancelled to allow as many departmental members to attend as possible. Please note that this event is registered for CPD points.
