Cancellations by RCPCH and changes to course content

RCPCH events and courses are constantly updated and while we endeavour to deliver the courses as advertised there may inevitably be occasions where we have to change content without prior notice or, in exceptional circumstances, to cancel an event.

In the case of a course cancellation delegates will be offered a full refund. We will also consider any reasonable request to cover non-refundable travel arrangements if a course is cancelled within 14 days of the start day. RCPCH will not compensate for time spent travelling or away from the place of work.*

*Occasionally circumstances will arise which result in the need to cancel, reschedule or postpone an event, due to an unforeseen occurrence or act of God. When this is the case RCPCH shall assume no liability.
