Doctors are feeling the impacts from the pandemic’s Omicron wave in a variety of ways. It all means that your working patterns and family responsibilities are prone to change at short notice. At the same time, the skills and behaviours we develop through our courses are essential for getting us through the immediate difficulties and for moving forward. So education must continue and we want to make sure you can book your course with confidence.
What if I have to change my booking?
If you are unable to attend a course for any reason related to the pandemic, then we will transfer your booking to another date, free of charge. We will do this even when this is at short notice, as long as you contact us beforehand. This over-rides our normal Transfer & Cancellation Policy section of our Terms & Conditions until the end of February 2022.
What safeguards are in place when I attend a course?
Virtual Training Room courses:
The majority of our courses are currently scheduled for our Virtual Training Room. This means you can participate and interact with your tutor and other doctors for the safety of your own home. We have redesigned many of our courses activities and significantly reduced delegate numbers to ensure you have an engaging, enjoyable and worthwhile learning experience.
Over the coming months, we have number of in-person courses scheduled for London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. We ask all delegates attending these events to wear a mask when moving around. We also ask everyone to observe good hygiene and social distancing at all times. To make this realistic, we have reduced maximum delegate numbers and redesigned the course activities.
If circumstances change and mean this is no longer viable, then we will change the course to run in our Virtual Training Room. This will be a last resort as we realise anyone choosing in-person has a preference to learn that way. We will contact you at the earliest opportunity if we have to make such a change. You will have the choice of attending the Virtual Training Room, changing to a different date or having a refund.
Our broad range of online courses offer you the chance to learn on your own, at your own pace. You can revisit the material as often as you like over the duration of your subscription. This means they are unaffected by any uncertainties over availability for dates, travel or meeting other people. We’ve also recently revamped our Online Career Development Collections. These enable you to make considerable savings when purchasing multiple courses while broaden your learning experience.
We will update this page during the first week of February 2022 or if there are any further developments before then.
