For those who have not been double vaccinated, proof of a negative lateral flow test can be used to gain access to Conference. Lateral flow test results must be reported to https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result and the resulting email or text message can be used to access Conference.

We will encourage Conference attendees to wear a facemask when in any Conference venue to provide reassurance to others, unless exempt.
We hope that the measures in place will provide reassurance to our delegates and visitors. If you can no longer attend due to the above measures, please contact Conference Services who can arrange a refund.
