Competitions

Unfortunately due to the very real threat of increasing numbers of people with coronavirus, we do not feel it prudent to hold our Northern & Yorkshire Spring Conference event. Our patients are at the most risk and vulnerable and should anyone be infected, or potentially infected as a result of attending the conference the impact of a quarantine on such a group of leaders would be devastating to our services. 

As the competitions were scheduled to be held at the Spring Conference, they will no longer take place and we will not be accepting any entries.

We hope you understand and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
