COVID-19 Update

Following Coronavirus outbreak we have been monitoring the situation and following the uncertainty, recent travel restrictions, people self-isolation, non-availability of venues, etc, we will not be holding this course in London.

However, we are pleased to say that we are not cancelling the course and this is will be taking place on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 May 2020 online hence will have the same great teaching provided direct to the comfort of your home/office. 

Following the lecturers willingness to go ahead, the course will be livestream (on-line) to your home or office; the faculty have agreed either to lecture live on-line on the day, or provide the content which will be recorded a few days before, depending on their NHS duties at the time.  They will be available on the day for Q&A sessions.  Furthermore, you will also get access to recordings of the entire course afterwards to review at your leisure.

Please note
that we shall contact subscribed delegates in the coming weeks with access details.

Other benefits to be accrued with this on-line course delivery include:

  • You will not need to travel to London (saving on expensive travel and hotel costs)
  • We provide full two-way interaction with all faculty and the rest of the audience for discussion
  • Immediate access to online evaluation of the course and subsequently, your FULL CPD Certificate
  • With your continued support, the cost of Infomed courses (and hence price) will begin to gradually decrease.

12 CPD credits

Key for the revalidation process, provides 6 CPD points PER DAY and an attendance certificate
