We continue to monitor guidance around Covid-19 and follow government, WHO and public health advice. With this at the forefront of any decision, at the time of releasing this call for papers (September 2020) we expect to be able to hold the HA Conference in Bristol in May 2021. The feedback from members is that they would be keen to attend such an event and bookings and interest remain high.
We are actively looking at guidance on health and safety around the event to ensure that delegates, speakers and staff can be confident that the event is held in a safe and secure environment. It means that we may need to put in place additional measures to ensure that the conference remains a vibrant but educationally stimulating event, while maintaining social distance and public health standards.
Should a change in circumstances necessitate moving the conference online in May we would look to do so, as is planned for November 2020. If your session is selected for the programme you will be contacted about this with sufficient notice.
