Cancellation of events until end of May 2020

We are very sorry that, in light of the current global outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone all of our conferences, courses and events taking place before the end of May 2020.

As outlined in our booking conditions, we regret we are unable to refund any delegate travel and/or accommodation costs if an event is cancelled.

We therefore recommend booking flexible tickets and accommodation where possible for upcoming events that have not yet been postponed or cancelled.

Please see our coronavirus events FAQs for more information

The RCOG Northern Professional Development Conference is aimed at providing an authoritative update on clinical problems relevant to the specialty of obstetrics and gynaecology. It will provide a similar programme, but in an alternative venue to the Annual Professional Development Conference held in London each year.

Expert speakers will give an overview suitable to colleagues in all subspecialties, as well as generalists. The meeting also provides an opportunity to have informal discussions with College officers.

UK Specialist Societies will be hosting parallel breakout sessions, enabling you to tailor your attendance according to your interests. It is an ideal opportunity to meet colleagues from all specialities and catch up with developments in science, clinical practice and medical politics, as they affect obstetrics and gynaecology.

The meeting is aimed at practising specialists and is designed as an update rather than as a basic introduction.

Learning Objectives

  • Hear the full spectrum of recent advances from experts in their field, deliberately tailored for a diverse audience
  • Provide an update on current medical politics
  • Learn about College activities

Who Should Attend

  • All Senior Clinicians in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
