Why is Medicine 2020 being postponed?

As a leading health organisation aimed at improving patient care and preventing disease in the UK and globally, the RCP takes seriously its responsibility to protect clinicians and the public from contracting COVID-19 and to ensure that the NHS is as prepared as it can be for increased demand.

As most of those attending the annual conference are doctors and other health professionals, this move signals the RCP’s concern to protect the NHS frontline workforce as best it can.
