Official announcement:  SSG/BSG EQIP Meeting - Postponed
It is with regret that the organising committee for the SSG/BSG EQIP Meeting due to take place on 28th August 2020 at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, have had to take the decision to postpone this event.  The reasons for the postponement are largely as a result of both the Scottish and UK Governments recent announcements relating to meetings and events, which in turn has led to the Royal College Management Team unilaterally cancelling all face to face events until after 1st October 2020.
The organising committee are actively reviewing the options now available for the meeting, including postponing to a later date for an in-person event or changing it to a webinar format in collaboration with the British Society of Gastroenterology.  A final decision will be made on this in the coming weeks and further information will be posted here when confirmed.
Please find attached the formal letter from Dr John Morris and Dr Umesh Basavaraju giving further details around the postponement.
Thank you for your support for the meeting and we look forward to hosting this event in some form in due course.
Kind regards,
Dr A J Morris                                                                                            Dr Umesh Basavaraju
