Event cancellation policy

Information about our cancellation and refund policy, including changes to course content, for RCPCH events, courses and ceremonies.

Statement on events, courses and ceremonies and the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus) outbreak

In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19, the College has been fielding questions regarding our upcoming events and ceremonies. At present our events, courses and ceremonies are expected to run as scheduled, but we continue to monitor and assess the situation and notice of any cancellations will be posted on our Events landing page.

If the College has to cancel an event, registered delegates will receive a full refund of the fees paid. However, the College is not responsible for any travel or any other costs that may have been incurred.

The same rules will apply to a delegate unable to attend an RCPCH event due to travel restrictions imposed by the UK or their national government; a full refund of the event fee will be given where documentary evidence is provided.

You can review the latest UK Government travel advice on GOV.UK.
